The Earth-Life Science Institute (ELSI) at Tokyo Tech will be hosting Japan SciCom Forum 2018.

This event will bring together communicators, writers, scientists, journalists and select experts from abroad to inspire and boost the cohesion of science communication in Japan. When news of research carried out in Japan can effectively reach a global audience, the whole national science community will benefit.

Anyone interested in science communication, especially researchers themselves, are encouraged to attend.
