Both the United States and Japan have long taken pride in their robust scientific research communities’ contributions to economic growth and human welfare. But the slowing pace and rising costs of research, along with strong competition from China and India, have challenged both governments to rethink their approaches to science and technology policy and set agendas that encourage innovation towards solving big social problems.

The Abe Fellows Global Forum will bring together experts to discuss how the United States and Japan are responding to these challenges, as well as the rapidly rising innovation hubs in China, India and Singapore. Panelists will consider institutional factors that encourage or discourage innovation; the impact of big data and AI on innovation policies and strategies; cultures of innovation in Japan, the US and other Asian countries; conflicts between the interests of companies, national populations, and global welfare; and challenges for the future of scientific innovation.

With opening remarks by the Honorable Takashi Shinozuka from the Consul General of Japan in Atlanta, Jacqueline Royster from the Ivan Allen College of Liberal Arts in Georgia Institute of Technology, and Junichi Chano from the Japan Foundation Center for Global Partnership.

The keynote speaker will be Takahiro Ueyama, the 2000 Fellow, who is now at the Council for Science, Technology, and Innovation, Cabinet Office at the Japan National Graduate Institute of Policy Studies (GRIPS)
