March 27, 2019

On Friday, February 22, Ritsumeikan University College and Graduate School of Sport and Health Science and Ritsumeikan UK Office held a symposium entitled 'From London to Tokyo - the Cutting-Edge Research of Sport & Health' at the Embassy of Japan in London, together with Loughborough University and Japan Sport Council.

The symposium was held as part of the Japan-UK Season of Culture (an event agreed upon at a bilateral summit between Prime Ministers Shinzo Abe and Theresa May in August 2017), and the Top Global University Project, run by the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology.

Its aim was to provide a forum for researchers from both countries to share their cutting edge sport and health research, whilst highlighting the best of Japan from a researchers perspective, in an effort to promote further research, education, and industry-university collaboration in both countries leading up to the Tokyo Olympic and Paralympic Games in 2020.
