『社会課題解決のための開発とイノベーション』研究部会(2023年11月)

2023年度活動報告(Oct. 2022-Sept. 2023)

This year will be the second year since the establishment of our research group, IDSSP (Innovation and Development for Solving Social Problems). Based on the activities conducted in the FY 2022, we discussed the directions of research, examined research progress of our group members, organized an oral session at the 24th JASID Spring Conference, and made presentations to share research findings of our group members.

In Dec. 2022 and Jan. 2023, we consulted with member representatives about the directions of research.

In Feb. 2023, we reviewed research progress of our group members, organized an oral session for the 24th JASID Spring Conference, prepared abstracts of papers for presentations and also of our session, and submitted a plan of our session to the conference secretariat. We also elected a commentator for our session.

In March and April 2023, designated presenters prepared full papers.
In May 2023, full papers from presenters were collected and submitted to the conference secretariat. In the meantime, we were consolidating research activities for the next year.

In June 2023, our session we held at the 24th JASID Spring Conference.
