Tsukuba Global Science Week 2018 (TGSW 2018)



急速にグローバル化が進み、想像以上のスピードで激変する世界情勢の中で、国際社会は「地球規模課題」に対する解決策を渇望している。その一方で、災害被災地に代表される各地域社会もそれぞれの問題を抱えている。このような、様々なレベルの社会の要請に対して、筑波大学では、多岐にわたる学術分野の最先端の研究成果を共有し、より良い未来を実現するために何ができるかを議論する場として、筑波研究学園都市においてTsukuba Global Science Week (TGSW)を開催している。TGSWには、本学だけでなく、世界各国から、ベテランから若手まで幅広い層の研究者や大学院生が参加する。多岐にわたる領域を専門的に議論するだけでなく、筑波研究学園都市に一堂に会することで、国内外の異分野交流を促進している




As the pace of globalization continues unabated, we have come to witness a range of “global issues” – climate change and global warming, biodiversity, world hunger and poverty, environmental degradation, food security, human trafficking, terrorism, etc. – that call for worldwide collaboration of scientists for solutions. Tsukuba Global Science Week (TGSW) was conceived and launched as a platform for sharing the latest research results, carrying out transdisciplinary conversations, and providing an impetus for action to deal with such intractable problems.

With the University of Tsukuba as its principal host, TGSW is held annually in Tsukuba Science City – Japan’s largest science city and a global hub for science and technology. The construction of the City had begun in the late 1960s as a major national project to establish a hub for research institutes and other organizations, both newly created and transplanted from Tokyo to carry out world-class research. Tsukuba Science City is now a proud host of over 30% of the country’s research institutes and related organizations with more than 20,000 researchers from all over the world, engaged in cutting-edge research ranging from next-generation cancer therapy, innovative medicine, natural energy, robotics to nanotechnology, among others.

The scope of TGSW is indeed broad and far-reaching. By bringing together internationally renowned researchers, and aspiring young researchers and students based in Tsukuba and much beyond, it covers a whole variety of topics, promoting lively exchanges, regardless of borders and disciplines. It also serves as an ideal international networking opportunity for transdisciplinary, trans-organizational and trans-border collaborations.
