Today, technical challenges and social issues cannot be solved by only one country. Technologies such as next processing, data analysis, and cyber security are gaining strong attention among both academia and industries. Japan and Denmark have a long research collaboration history within quantum technology since Yoshio Nishina (Former president of RIKEN) studied at Niels Bohr Institute in Denmark in 1927 and invited Niels Bohr (Nobel Prize Physicist) to RIKEN in 1937. “Quantum Technology” is chosen as a research seminar topic this year because it’s an area in which international research collaboration is essential.Carlos Moedas, the Commissioner of Research, Science and Innovation of the European Commission, and Yoshimasa Hayashi, the Minister of the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology, Japan agreed in January 2018 to strengthen cooperation between EU and Japan within this area.

The speakers are Jan W. Thomsen (The head of Niels Bohr Institute), Eugene Simon Polzik (Center for Quantum Optics (QUANTOP)), Charlie Marcus (Centre for Quantum Devices and Station Q Copenhagen) from Denmark and top class researchers from Japanese academia and industries who have been globally leading this research field. We will have a networking event after the seminar. We hope this seminar is inspirational and provides a great match-making environment for talents and key persons from various fields to create new relationships for the start of new projects and for the acceleration of technical development of both countries. We look very much forward to your participation!
