The UK-Japan 150 year anniversary, Science, Technology and Innovation symposium - Astronomy & Space Science - will celebrate the 150th anniversary of UK-Japan academic interaction. In 1863, five Japanese students, 'Choshu Five', including Hirobumi Ito, who later became the Japan's first Prime Minister, arrived in the UK and studied at University College London. Since that time, Japan and the UK have exchanged scholars and developed collaborative works across many fields, including Astronomy and Space Science. Furthermore the UK and Japanese Governments signed the MOU for wider cooperation on space activities during PM Cameron’s visit to Japan. Following such circumstance, the symposium will highlight the past, current and future collaborations in Astronomy and Space Science, covering a wide range of research topics, from the Sun to Cosmology.
