In the final instalment in this series of four webinars held in partnership with Chatham House, experts from Japan and the UK consider new opportunities for academic cooperation between UK and Japanese universities through the upheaval of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Innovation has been key to uplifting societies, including Japan and the UK. It is stimulated not only by private enterprise but also by universities working in collaboration. This webinar looks at how universities in the two countries are tackling the issue of collaboration and how they can further stimulate joint research. As the importance of studying abroad is once again recognized, the webinar examines how mobility for international students between the two countries can be revitalised.

This webinar is the final instalment in a series of four events held in partnership with Chatham House.
