IAFOR Collaborates with the University of Tokyo’s Israel Week Event Series

Israel Week @UTokyo Komaba Research Campus

IAFOR is happy to be working with the University of Tokyo on a series of online seminars and lectures on the recent trends and developments in Israel and its impact on Japan-Israel relations as a part of Israel Week @UTokyo Komaba Research Campus.

The events in this framework will cover a broad range of topics, including the recent normalization of relations between Israel and Arab countries, STEM education, Science & Design, emergency preparedness and digital health innovation ecosystems, security risks of digital transformation, and the comparative study of the Abrahamic religions. It aims to provide an international forum for the exchange of ideas and inspiration from researchers and experts across different fields, and to seek opportunities for collaboration among the participants from academia, NGOs, industry, and the public sector.
