From 10th to 12th September, Inter-Academia 2014 was held at Riga Technical University in Latvia. In addition to the Rector of the Riga Technical University, Prof. Talis Juhn, Vice- President of Shizuoka University, Prof. Masakazu Kimura, the Japanese ambassador to Latvia, Mr. Toshiyuki Taga and academics from Japan and East European countries all attended the opening ceremony. The ambassador delivered a speech, encouraging further development of academic exchange between Latvia and Japan.
The conference successfully gathered about 160 participants in total, including academics and young researchers from Central & Eastern European countries and 35 academics and students from Shizuoka University.
Following the presentations of the latest research on the first two days, the Young researcher’s award competition was held. The competition consists of the presentation and the poster session, and four students from Shizuoka University were awarded the prize.
Next year, the 14th conference is going to be held at Shizuoka University. We hope to provide fruitful opportunities for deepening the ties between academics and young researchers of Shizuoka and those from Central and Eastern European countries.
