MIRAI 2.0 Kick-off meeting

The MIRAI consortium is a group of Japanese and Swedish universities including Uppsala University that promote collaborations between our researchers.

If you are interested in learning more about opportunities in MIRAI or Swedish and Japanese perspectives on COVID-19, please join us on 7-8 October for the kick-off meeting celebrating the new phase in MIRAI (MIRAI 2.0). 
On the 7th of October, there will be a Q&A session with some of the previous successful MIRAI collaborations, including Malin Graffner Nordberg (UU Innovation). Then, on the 8th of October, a panel discussion with Japanese and Swedish researchers will take place. This discussion will focus on the challenges and solutions concerning the COVID-19 crisis, from both the medical and broader society perspectives.

We hope you are interested in participating in this kick-off event, and look forward to this and future MIRAI activities!
