How can we spark public interest in science and technology through space? What efforts are being made in Japan and Sweden to spread knowledge and engage the public and others in space research? What can we learn from each other?
This year, Japan and Sweden celebrate 150 years of diplomatic relations. One of the areas where the two countries cooperate closely is space research and exploration.
You are warmly invited to a conference to discuss and learn about the role of science and space in society and the importance of dialogue and collaboration between researchers and their surrounding communities.
