On 18 December 2019, Professor Reed of University of Oxford, Director of the Next Generation Tatara Co-creation Centre visited Shimane University and attended the Tatara Centre Meeting and the 3rd round of Shimane Advanced Metal Materials Base Creation Project project (B) meeting.
In the Tatara Centre Meeting, the attendees had discussions in English on the topics such as the new laboratory building, human recourse development, plan for the next fiscal year, and also the future vision to obtain funding to sustain the project.
The B Meeting followed in the afternoon with the agendas like the progress report of each project, the next year’s plan, and so on. During the meeting, one of the professors of Shimane University made a remark on the workshop which was held at University of Oxford in September, and Professor Reed and Dr. Adziman introduced the university’s efforts. Later in the meeting, each of the attendees stated their impressions on the progress of the project and the Centre’s efforts in the first year, mostly with anticipation of the success in the project.
Dr. Hattori, President of Shimane University also had a chance to talk with Professor Reed between the meetings, and discussed the project and the reformation of Shimane University.
The next B Meeting is going to be held in July 2020.
