MIRAI Seminar (Language: English) is held at the Yasuda Auditorium on Wednesday, October 10.

MIRAI is an academic consortium consisting of seven Swedish universities and eight Japanese universities; it was initiated based on the discussion at the "Japan-Sweden University Presidents’ Summit" held in October of 2015. To further expand and strengthen academic exchanges and research collaborations between the two countries, MIRAI holds an annual seminar, where researchers and students from the member universities meet to seek further collaborations.

2018 coincides with the 150th Anniversary of the diplomatic relations between Sweden and Japan. Commemorating this milestone, MIRAI seminar 2018 in Tokyo will invite not only top-level researchers, but also distinguished guests from the governments and funding agencies, in order to discuss opportunities to further expand collaborative research and academic exchanges between the two countries.
