4th Program of International Platform on Ocean Energy for Young Researcher 2017

Institute of Ocean Energy, Saga University (IOES), A Joint Usage/Research Center, National University Corporation


IOES was established to contribute through the development of ocean energy to efforts to resolve the global environmental issues.

Meanwhile, IOES promotes academic exchange. Japan-Korea joint young researcher forum has been held in inter-university collaboration between Japan and Korea over the past 10 years.

For the next leaps in research capability and academic exchange, the 4th Program of International Platform on Ocean Energy for Young Researcher 2017 has been held. In this program, 28 young researchers were invited from 17 areas (China, Egypt, France, Korea, Malaysia, Netherlands, India, Indnesia, Iran, Palau, Philippines, Portugal, Singapore, Thailand, UK, USA and Japan).

The special lectures by professors in a field of ocean energy were delivered. Continuously, the presentations by young researchers were conducted in the program, and Best Presentation Awards were given to 5 presenters. Besides, the young researchers debated about 2 questions ("What is the barrier to promote Ocean Energy?" and "What should we do to promote Ocean Energy?") in the group discussion. Furthermore, the company tour was held in Saga and Nagasaki, and it was finished with short presentations about the knowledge obtained through this program.
