[Closed] 2017 SciREX Summer Camp application

[UTokyo STIG students only]

As part of the joint education program within “Science for RE-designing Science, Technology and Innovation Policy”(SciREX), we organize a summer camp jointly with the six core universities every year. The summer camp offers an excellent opportunity to discuss common themes, exchange views and perspectives, and interact with other participants having diverse backgrounds. It also aims at promoting network formation among students studying in different universities.


Making Scenario for 2030:
Interdisciplinary Collaboration for Future Science, Technology & Innovation Policies

The SciREX Summer Camp 2017 provides an opportunity for practical learning experiences to draw future visions and designs towards 2030, and build evidence-based policies.
Tokyo will host the Olympic in 2020. However, it is only a passage point towards far distant future. Discussions are undergoing what to reserve as a legacy after the event and inter-ministry and –industry efforts are taken to follow the strategy. What we need now is depicting and sharing the future visions and paths towards/beyond 2020 and designing and implementing evidence-based policies.
This year’s SciREX summer camp will discuss future visions towards 2030, while keeping the Olympic year 2020 in mind as an important milestone, to learn the importance of having alternative scenarios with long-term and wider perspectives, in making policies. After the plenary session, the issue-specific group works, and methodology-learning group works are designed. In group works, participants with multi-discipline and -background are gathering together to identify core policy issues and propose creative and innovative policy options based on available evidence and also through interviews with decision-makers and other key stakeholders. Groups will present those proposals towards decision makers and practitioners in the final presentation session.
