As part of activities to promote interest and understanding of science and technology, the research activities of JIRCAS will be introduced to the public in the form of mini lecture videos during Science and Technology Week starting on Monday, April 17, 2023.
The week from Monday (April 17) to Sunday (April 23) including "Invention Day" on April 18 every year is called "Science and Technology Week" and was established in February 1960 for the purpose of deepening the understanding and interest in science and technology among the general public and promoting science and technology in Japan. Various science and technology-related events are held by science museums, universities, research institutes, and other organizations throughout Japan.
JIRCAS is releasing 2 video archives consisting of 13 mini lectures and special lectures from the past 2 years. In addition, two newly recorded mini-lecture videos are also available.
We hope that this event will further deepen the relationship between JIRCAS and the general public, disseminate useful research information, and provide an opportunity for the public to understand international agricultural, forestry, and fisheries research.
