Project Research Associate Daigo Terutsuki attended the JSPS 11th HOPE Meeting and won the Best Team Presentation Award

2019/4/23

Project Research Associate Daigo Terutsuki (Intelligent Cooperative Systems) was selected as an attendee of the JSPS 11th HOPE Meeting which was held in Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology Graduate University (OIST), 4-8 March 2019, named a JSPS HOPE Fellow and received the Best Team Presentation Award.

HOPE Meetings organized by Japan Society for the Promotion of Science (JSPS) give opportunities for excellent doctoral students and young researchers selected from countries/areas in the region to engage in interdisciplinary discussions with Nobel laureates and other distinguished scientists. Their programs include dialogue with distinguished researchers, exchanges among the participants themselves, and cultural lectures and activities.

This year, Prof. Aaron Ciechanover (Nobel Laureate in Chemistry 2004), Prof. Ada Yonath (Nobel Laureate in Chemistry 2009), Prof. Hiroshi Amano (Nobel Laureate in Physics 2014), Prof. Ben L. Feringa (Nobel Laureate in Chemistry 2016), Dr. Tim Hunt (Nobel Laureate in Physiology or Medicine 2001), Prof. Gunnar Öquist (Professor Emeritus, Umeå University/Former Permanent Secretary, The Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences) and Prof. Takaaki Kajita (Nobel Laureate in Physics 2015, the chairperson of the Organizing Committee of the 11th HOPE Meeting) gave lectures and conducted small group discussions with participants. Attendees also gave poster presentations and lively discussed with Nobel Laureates and researchers of the same generation.

Participants of the meeting were divided into 11 teams (team A to K) and gave their team presentations as a theme “Science and Society” on 8 March. Finally, the Organizing Committee selected Team-K, including Project Research Associate Terutsuki, as the “Best Team Presentation Award,” because of their most excellent presentation.

 

My impressions with regard to the HOPE Meeting
I asked Prof. Ada Yonath about the philosophy that should be followed by young researchers, and she answered with “First, curiosity. Second, curiosity. Third, more curiosity. And finally, passion.” This is actually the right temperament we should maintain as scientists. (Daigo Terutsuki)
