Event Title:
UK-Japan (JSPS-Imperial College London-University of Tokyo) Symposium on Climate Change
( report )


Energy and Green House Gas Mitigation Technologies

A two-day symposium on Energies and Green House Gas Mitigation Technologies was held on the 28th - 29th September, 2006. Sponsored by the JSPS London Office in conjunction with Imperial College London and The University of Tokyo, the symposium took place at the Kensington Campus of Imperial College London. Seven researchers from Japan and eight from the UK were invited to speak on the latest and future counter global warming technologies. This extremely topical and important theme attracted over 200 researchers, students and representatives of UK and Japanese government agencies and corporations to the event.
The symposium marked the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding to conduct more extensive exchange activities between The University of Tokyo and Imperial College London.
