The Kick-off Symposium of the Japan Association for the Advancement of Science (JAAS) will be held. Within this symposium, a workshop for "Research Abroad" will be held.

In recent years, an increasing number of students have been choosing to go on to higher education after high school graduation, not at universities in Japan, but at universities overseas. Many students also go on to graduate school to study in graduate schools in English-speaking countries. There are now more options available, and there is a growing movement to enter overseas universities through a variety of routes. Among the students who study abroad in this way, many young people are building their research careers abroad and starting out as researchers. In this session, we would like to deepen the dialogue between high school and university students who wish to study abroad and researchers who are actually conducting research abroad. In the first half of the session, lectures will be given by researchers and graduate students who have studied abroad. In the second half, the session will be divided into breakout rooms where high school students will give research presentations by field, and researchers and graduate students will ask questions and comment in breakout sessions.
