Emerging Sciences and a Changing World: EU-Japan in Transition

October 07, 2016

We are pleased to inform you of the symposium "Emerging Sciences and a Changing World: EU-Japan in Transition" to be held on 8 November 2016 at Vrije Universiteit Brussel (VUB). This is the 7th Kobe University Brussels European Centre and this year's symposium is jointly organised with VUB. During the event, the latest collaborations between Japan and EU in Data Science, Cultural Diversity, Migration and Security, and Particle Physics will be introduced by prominent researchers from Japanese and EU institutions.

Changing The World
What does it take to change the world for the better? This hour, TED speakers explore ideas on activism—what motivates it, why it matters, and how each of us can make a difference. Guests include civil rights activist Ruby Sales, labor leader and civil rights activist Dolores Huerta, author Jeremy Heimans, "craftivist" Sarah Corbett, and designer and futurist Angela Oguntala.

#521 The Curious Life of Krill
Krill may be one of the most abundant forms of life on our planet... but it turns out we don't know that much about them. For a create that underpins a massive ocean ecosystem and lives in our oceans in massive numbers, they're surprisingly difficult to study. We sit down and shine some light on these underappreciated crustaceans with Stephen Nicol, Adjunct Professor at the University of Tasmania, Scientific Advisor to the Association of Responsible Krill Harvesting Companies, and author of the book "The Curious Life of Krill: A Conservation Story from the Bottom of the World".
