ExS Challenge Kick-off Seminar


Published: July 2, 2021

The School of Engineering at Tokyo Institute of Technology (Tokyo Tech) is running a problem-solving practical idea contest to realize a sustainable society. Following the guidance seminar held on June 11th, this time we will provide an opportunity to deepen your knowledge of sustainability and learn entrepreneurship (no prior application is required). We will also introduce case studies from a graduate who is actually engaged in problem-solving innovation. It is also possible to apply for ExS Challenge participation after listening to this seminar (the entry form link is below). Any groups or individuals represented by a student, postdoc, or assistant professor at the School of Engineering, Tokyo Tech can participate. Associate professors and professors cannot be representatives, but they are welcome to join as members. Students at other schools at Tokyo Tech, students at other universities, or even workers in companies are welcome as a member of a group, but cannot be the representatives of a group.
