What the 9th Dialogue for Global Innovation is all about

    Since 2010, Dialogue for Global Innovation (DFGI) has been accelerating borderless innovation, especially between Japan and European countries. For the past 10 years, industry-academia collaboration symposia have been held at embassies, national laboratories, and leading universities to exchange the latest results and business insights between circles.
    Due to the impact of the new coronavirus infection, there was a three-year hiatus from the 7th meeting in 2019, but in October 2022, the 8th symposium was held in London, UK. The 9th symposium will be held in September 2023 at the University of Oxford, UK. Continuing from Part 8, we will discuss the theme of "Technology and Humanity -Part 5: Advanced AI vs. Well-being, and Quantum Computing".
