Major Activities

Science Agora


Views of 2016 Science Agora

Science Agora is a major science forum that serves as an open venue in Japan to connect experts and people from other sectors so that they can discuss various science issues together and apply what they have learned from each other in future agendas. Since it was started in 2006, Science Agora has been held annually and showcased various activities in science communication.
With the vision "A future woven through dialogue between science & daily life" JST has been advancing the formulation of a "joint creation" platform while forming a network with parties implementing activities in each region nationwide.

Science Communications Activities

We emphasize dialog and collaboration among diverse stakeholders including local governments, universities and science museums nationwide, and support scientific communication activities toward resolving social problems and meeting social needs.
Specifically, we build and utilize scientific communication networks among regional organs, and support activities toward resolving social problems on a three-year cycle.

Spreading and Sharing Information

JST's comprehensive web site Science Portal which provides the latest S&T developments to disseminate and share information, Science Channel library with approximately 4,000 free films, and Science Window scientific education magazine which opens the minds of youth toward a career in science provide useful information for the general public and for the activities of experts as well.
