Okinawa Triggers Internationalization of Japanese Universities
Science Talk with Dr. Akito Arima
On August 23, seven students from the Okinawa National College of Technology, accompanied by Professor Hideyuki Yamashiro, visited the OIST campus for a “Science Talk” with Dr. Akito Arima, Co-chair of the OIST Board of Governors (BOG), Chairman of the Japan Science Foundation and the President and Chair of the Board of Trustees at the Human Frontier Science Program.
A Big Week
OIST had an action-packed few days last week as it hosted meetings of its Board of Governors and Board of Councilors, followed by a press conference; held two performances to commemorate the opening of the new auditorium; and welcomed the First Ladies of Pacific island nations for a visit.
