KYOTO STEAM Future Emergence Forum 2021

At Kyoto Cultivates Team, where corporations, artists, and universities related to Kyoto and specialized in the fusion of art, science, and technology come together, STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art, mathematics) professionals exchange opinions based on their respective expertise, and work on developing business ideas centered on the concept of “creating a future with culture” that will last another thousand years. This forum features the launch of two projects that were inspired by this concept along with a presentation of the results of KYOTO DAIRI PROJECT, a business project that kicked off last year.
