One of the vital purposes of the Tsukuba Conference is to provide participants with opportunities to gain insights regarding how to bring about a great impact on international society through the commercialization of their ideas or research fruits and to find potential partners across borders and cultures for this purpose. The key here is the entrepreneurship for creating and spreading innovation around the globe. In this session, distinguished speakers will talk about this topic from various perspectives, while being based on their own experiences.
