About STS forum

Pave the Way for Future Generations

Lights and Shadows

The explosive progress of science and technology has brought economic growth and enriched the quality of life, but also raised a number of challenges for society such as climate change and privacy in ICT. STS forum seeks to strengthen the lights and control the shadows of science and technology.

Collaboration among Academia,
Industry and Government

No one country or constituency alone can solve the issues of science and technology facing the humankind. STS forum is a platform to form collaborative networks among global leaders in academia, industry and government in order for us to build a better world together.

Long-Term Perspective

STS forum takes a truly long-term perspective of 100 to 500 years ahead, thereby seeking to foster sustainable society for generations to come.
