Tuesday, November 7, 17:00- The 3rd "Academic Entrepreneurs Café - Medical-Industrial Collaboration: A Sudden Encounter -" Call for participants!

GTIE holds a series of easy-to-attend events to make startups more accessible to researchers as a means of implementing research results in society.

For faculty members, young researchers, and students who are aware of the social implementation of their research, but have difficulty imagining themselves taking on the challenge of a start-up.

And to researchers who are already challenging start-ups

Why don’t you meet directly with researchers who are actually challenging startups and their supporters, and hear about various topics from the unique perspective of those involved in the research?

Meet new Academic Entrepreneurs through interaction with speakers and audience participants!

The third event will be held at Tokyo Medical and Dental University (2-minute walk from Ochanomizu Station).

Researchers who are trying to solve problems in the medical field through medical-engineering collaborations will gather to discuss start-ups based on their research results.

The three researchers are Kotaro Tadano, a robotics researcher and associate professor at Tokyo Institute of Technology; Shinji Ikeuchi, a microfabrication and AI researcher and professor at Tokyo Medical and Dental University; and Yoshikazu Nakajima, a professor at Tokyo Medical and Dental University, who aims for practical applications in medicine and healthcare based on engineering technologies such as computer science, information and communication engineering, and measurement engineering.

They will talk about how they met the challenges and needs of medical care, and the difficulties they encountered in their start-up efforts.

There will be a lot of exclusive discussions that can only be held in person! Please come and visit us in Ochanomizu.
