Interdisciplinary Lecture "Research and Society"

Research is often a social activity and cannot be separated from social, political and economic situations. In addition to acquiring expertise and skills in their own research fields, researchers need to be able to think about interactions between their research and society.

This course discusses basic ideas about ethical, historical, social, and policy aspects of research activities, and offers opportunities for participants to think about social issues related to research through mutual discussions. Participants are expected to express their views about research in relation to social issues and discuss with other participants.

In FY 2015, "Research and Society" will be delivered on September 1 (Tue) and 2 (Wed) at the Institute of Space and Astronautical Science (ISAS, Sagamihara City, Kanagawa prefecture) of the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA). For the detail of this course, please follow the link below.
