Notices

As part of the Kyushu University's 111th-anniversary event [VISION EXPO], a research pitch contest will be held for students and young researchers of the University.

Generally, a pitch contest is a short presentation of technological seeds or business ideas. However, this contest is not limited to business but aims at passionately communicating one's research ideas and prospects to society.

In the competition, we invite people with diverse knowledge and experience in industry, government, and academia to serve as judges. This is a valuable opportunity for applicants to receive advice and suggestions on their presentations from a variety of perspectives outside their field of expertise.

In addition, the top winners who make outstanding pitches in the main competition will receive cash prizes (from 100,000 yen to 500,000 yen).
