Tech Transfer, Innovation, and Entrepreneurship at OIST in Okinawa

December 3 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Join the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science (JSPS), the Japan Society of Northern California, the Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology Graduate University (OIST), and the OIST Foundation for a dynamic round-table discussion on the Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology Graduate University (OIST) and its work in tech transfer, innovation, and entrepreneurship in Okinawa.

Featuring Dr. Robert Baughman, Executive Vice President for Technology Development and Innovation at OIST, Ms. Lauren Bic Ha, Associate Vice President for Technology Development and Innovation at OIST, and Mr. David Janes, Senior Advisor for Institutional Development at OIST and Managing Director of the OIST Foundation, this panel will provide an overview of OIST and its work to develop an innovation ecosystem in Okinawa.

Opened in 2012 with funding from the Cabinet Office, the Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology Graduate University (OIST) <www.oist.jp> is a pioneering graduate university that bridges disciplines to explore new frontiers of scientific knowledge. OIST educates a new generation of scientific leaders and is the catalyst for breakthrough innovation in Okinawa and the world, and is of strategic importance to Japan and US-Japan relations. OIST is radically diverse with students from more than 50 countries. OIST encourages bold thinking and strives for excellence, and bridges Okinawa and the world.

In just eight short years as a graduate university in Okinawa, OIST was listed this year as one of the 10 top scientific research institutions globally according to Nature Magazine’s normalized rankings. This places OIST above MIT globally and first in Japan. With this recognition, OIST is rapidly realizing its aim of becoming a world-class scientific institution based in Japan that is truly global. OIST aims to be a challenge to traditional education in Japan and also intends to promote the sustainable development of Okinawa.
