Public Lectures

These lectures held to address society’s diversifying scientific and academic needs while familiarizing a wide spectrum of people with the activities of the Japan Academy. For this purpose, members of the Academy deliver lectures twice a year, in the spring and fall. The spring lecture meetings are held throughout Japan, whereas the fall meetings are held at the Japan Academy in Ueno Park. Under a common theme, researchers of various fields present their work at these meetings in a manner that can be easily understood by the general public.
