Overview

As Japan celebrates the 50th anniversary of its accession to the OECD, the symposium is intended as an opportunity to introduce to a wide audience the efforts the OECD/CSTP have made in the areas of science, technology and innovation, as well as Japan's involvement in these efforts. The symposium specifically aims at deepening deliberation on how to bridge the gap between society and science in order to create innovation with the introduction of the OECD/CSTP's and other relevant efforts serving as a basis for this discussion. It should be a very useful opportunity for our consideration of future science, technology and innovation policy.
