On Friday, March 3, the launch of “LVNS Forest Project” was announced at the press conference as a special event of HIC Tokyo 2023. It is a project to protect forest biodiversity, which is being destroyed by human activities, and to create sustainable activities while effectively utilizing forest resources in a way that allows people to live together.
In addition, a “Knowledge Manufacturing Ignition” was held as a new program to generate collaborative hypotheses among different disciplines from the poster session. In this project, during the convention, the “Technology Splash (short pitch by researchers and startups)” and “Poster & Booth Core Time” were used to accelerating generation of collaborative hypotheses from discussions among participants. And from the new collaborative themes that were proposed at the conference, three themes that we particularly wanted to support were selected and awarded with partner prizes. Through this program, a total of 25 application ideas were gathered through collaboration among more than 50 participants.
