Dynamic acceleration of research concept through integration of knowledge in different fields.

Though the importance of interdisciplinary research to develop a novel concept has been recognized, just mere gathering of different researchers does not promote the integration of knowledge from each field.

To the Hyper Interdisciplinary Conference researchers in academia, big companies, small factories, and startups gather together. Facilitation of discussion with different type of thinkers are tough job, but we LEAVE A NEST has 15 years of experience in this catalyst type activity. We set the topics to discuss and facilitate/accelerate the discussion as a professional. Why don’t’ you join us to develop futuristic vision with us and thinkers from different fields.
