Yokohama’s Next Generation Project
In conjunction with international conferences and exhibitions, Yokohama is implementing a project to develop the next generation through MICE. Yokohama welcomes researchers who are active in Japan and abroad to lead lectures, workshops and other courses for children and students in the city.
Through exchanges with internationally active researchers and hands-on training that cannot be experienced at school, this project provides opportunities for the youth who will lead the next generation to think about their future career trajectory by exposing them to cutting-edge technology and new ways of thinking.
Terms & Conditions
The following is applicable to programs for young students in Yokohama, held in conjunction with a conference/exhibition in Yokohama. (e.g., special lectures, hands-on classes or experimental workshops.)
