EPSRC funded report into Japanese interests in Industrial Sustainability
Over thirty delegates came together at the Institute of Materials Minerals and Mining in London to join the launch of an EPSRC funded report into Japanese interests in Industrial Sustainability.
The report was based on a study visit in which representatives from UK Universities and the EPSRC were able to meet with senior Japanese academics and engage in a full day workshop to learn about Japanese interests in Industrial Sustainability and identify areas of common interest.
The program in London included an introduction to the visit and supporting activities from Head of IfM Professor Sir Mike Gregory and an overview of the visits research findings from Professor Steve Evans of Cranfield. Dr. Jacquetta Lee on the University of Surrey and Dr. Derek Gillespie were also on hand to lend their insights during a Q&A session and help lead workshop groups.
The breakout groups were asked to comment on the report findings and to identify possible areas for collaboration and actions to take forward. The outputs from the workshop will be compiled into a report on the workshop and shared with the Japanese colleagues who participated in the Tokyo leg of the workshop.
The report is available to download from here, and presentations and materials from the day are available here:
