9th KIFEE( Kyoto International Forum for Environment and Energy)
Date: March 7th-10th, 2017
Place: Kanbaikan Doshisha Univeristy
Kyoto International Forum for Environment and Energy (KIFEE) was created in 2004 by the universities in the Kyoto region to establish an international arena for multi-disciplinary strategic co-operation to develop a sustainable society, inspired by the Kyoto Protocol. KIFEE has developed into an advanced “process”/arena where people + trust + inspiration create multidisciplinary teamwork cooperation that may solve challenges important for a sustainable society. For aiming to promote and exchange the knowledge of the sustainable society, the eight symposia (2004 Kyoto, 2006 Trondheim, 2007 Otsu, 2009 Trondheim, 2011 Kyoto, 2012 Trondheim, 2014 Kyoto, 2015, Trondheim) held so far, alternating between Japan and Norway, have attracted some 50 participants from the visiting side. This demonstrates not only the interest in the themes covered during the meetings, but also the close friendships made between the colleagues. Within this environment, discussions are held in a very open and productive atmosphere.
The object of this symposium is to provide a forum for discussion of sustainability for widespread areas, including process engineering, electrochemistry and advanced inorganic materials, advanced biological materials and education in energy and environment. Special attention is now focused to “sustainable science” and “industrial platform”, in order to create a new strategy to propel the exploitation of the frontier by developing interactions among a highly diversified interdisciplinary scientists, businesspersons and engineers that includes industry, government and academia.
The KIFEE 2017 topics will include the following area;
•Electrolysis System and Advanced Inorganic Materials
•Advanced Biological Materials
•Education in Environment and Energy
