Forum Session

This is a platform where speakers from the academia, the government, the industry, and the startup sector discuss a common issue revolving around the theme of the event. The theme for this year’s Forum Session is “Bringing Innovative Careers Closer to Home”. This session will begin with a brief background of the current development and climate of STEM careers in Japan; in turn, a panel of representatives from industry leaders will share their companies’ initiatives and programs focused on research development and innovation.

Career Pitch

A live presentation of representatives from various companies, industries, startups, and the public sector advertising about their services, their working environment, and the goals they are striving to achieve in hopes of acquiring potential members or collaborators from the audience. Presentations are strictly limited to 90 seconds with no question & answer portion as the format would be a fast-paced pitch presentation going from one presenter to the next, creating a heated atmosphere between the presenters and the audience and thereby raising their interests more. 

Mini Workshop

Partners will be given a platform to exchange ideas with the participants which could lead to new projects or careers. There will be 1 workshop session for each company, which will be repeated 3 times to maximize the number of students who can join.


Career Discovery Forum is mainly designed in the best interests of those graduating from universities who are on the search for a meaningful career trajectory. It is also constructed to aid companies that are looking for potential members to join their team that leads innovation and development.
