The 2nd KULOS Symposium ‘Ocean Research and its Application for a Sustainable Society’ will be held in Seattle on Tuesday, November 1, 2022 (PST).

Kobe University established KULOS (Kobe University Liaison Office in Seattle) in April 2020. Located in the Hyogo Business and Cultural Center in downtown Seattle, it is our first liaison office on the US mainland. KULOS will strive to contribute towards the globalization of Kobe University’s research and education by providing Kobe University faculty members and scholars with a venue for international symposia and workshops covering a diverse range of academic fields, in addition to offering global educational activities for students at various levels.

Organized in cooperation with the University of Washington and the Seattle-based company Maritime Blue, this second symposium will feature various presentations and discussions about marine research.

We will also hold a networking lunch before the symposium. This year marks the 65th anniversary of the sister-city relationship between Kobe city and Seattle. In conjunction with this anniversary, the networking lunch will bring together the Consul General of Japan in Seattle and the mayor of Kobe city, as well as a diverse range of people from Japanese companies, American companies, universities in the Seattle area, and U.S.-based alumni of Kobe University. This event aims to build a network that will encourage future research and academic-industrial partnerships. If you wish, you may attend only the symposium or only the networking lunch.
