Deep Tech Kyoto - Reverse Pitch by University Faculty for Management Recruitment from ECC-iCAP
New Materials for Future Society in Kyoto

This project was selected by NEDO as part of its "FY2023 Project to Support the Recruitment of Management Professionals for University Startups (MPM)," with the aim of identifying management professionals who are interested in starting their own businesses or participating in startup management, and matching them with technology seeds from universities and other organizations and university startups. The purpose of this program is to discover management talents who wish to start their own businesses or participate in start-up management.

We will invite professors who are interested in social implementation of research seeds (especially venture businesses) as speakers,
For personnel who aspire to become venture managers in the business world,
This event aims to introduce the seeds of research This event aims to introduce the seeds of research in the field.

This year's panelists are five of Kyoto University's proud scientific front-runners, with "new materials" as their keyword.
Cutting-edge research that could change the future,
A chance to implement (turn into business) in society with your help!

We will also have time for a casual dialogue with each speaker,
We look forward to your participation if you are interested in starting your own business using university-originated science!

To apply, please contactthis way (direction close to the speaker or towards the speaker)from (e.g. time, place, numerical value, etc.)

Introduction of Speakers ■

Syun Kiyose
(Doctoral Student, Graduate School of Engineering, Kyoto University)
Completed the master's course at the Graduate School of Engineering, Kyoto University in 2021, and has been enrolled in the doctoral program at the same university since April 2021. The same research theme was selected for the "Project Promotion Type Entrepreneurship Demonstration Support" of the JST New Industry Creation Fund Project in FY2023, and he aims to commercialize the technology as a management candidate.

Yoshihiko Susuki
(Associate Professor, Graduate School of Engineering, Kyoto University)
D. in March 2005 from the Graduate School of Engineering, Kyoto University. D. in Engineering from Kyoto University in March 2005, Assistant Professor and Lecturer from April 2005 to March 2016, and Visiting Scholar at the University of California, Santa Barbara for two years from April 2008. In April 2022, he became Associate Professor at the Graduate School of Engineering, Kyoto University. His research interests include power and energy systems, applied mathematics, and control applications.

Hiroshi Nishimura
(Program-Specific Associate Professor, Research Institute for Sustainable, Kyoto University)
B.S. in Industrial Chemistry, Faculty of Engineering, Kyoto University, 2003, Ph.D. in Agriculture, Kyoto University, 2009, Research Fellow, Department of Mission, Institute for Ars Vivendi, Kyoto University, JSPS Research Fellow PD, Assistant Professor, Research Institute for Ars Vivendi, and from 2022, Specified Associate Professor, Research Center for Future Ars Vivendi. Plant biomass is an organic resource for a sustainable, recycling-oriented future society. Although the persistence of lignin in wood is a bottleneck, he aims to realize a truly affluent society in harmony with nature through the creation of new materials by solving the molecular structure and utilizing its potential.

Shunsuke Murai
(Assistant Professor, Graduate School of Engineering, Kyoto University)
In May 2004, he withdrew from the doctoral course at the Graduate School of Engineering, Kyoto University, and in June 2004, he became an assistant professor at the same university (assistant professor from April 2007).
In the meantime, he was a visiting researcher (concurrently) at AMOLF (The Netherlands) from 2011-2012 and a JST PRESTO researcher (concurrently) from 2013-2017. Specialized in inorganic materials chemistry and nano-optics.

Mariko Yoshioka
(Associate Professor, Graduate School of Agriculture, Kyoto University)
Born in Kyoto City, Japan. Graduated from the Faculty of Agriculture, Kyoto University. After working as a science teacher at a junior high school in Kyoto City and as an instructor at the Kyoto City Science Center for Youth (chemistry area), he became an assistant at the Graduate School of Agriculture, Kyoto University, and a lecturer at the same school before assuming his current position in 2019. He has been conducting research on various advanced uses of plant biomass through chemical conversion of wood and carbohydrates, and nanocompositing using cellulose nanofibers and nanoclays.
