Holding of an Alumni Online Talk Session on December 18

We have all been through a tough time this year due to the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic.
Now that the end of the year is approaching, how about spending time with some of your fellow alumni from around the world?

At this event, four alumni from various fields will share their experiences of the pandemic, the impact it has had on their work and lifestyles, and how they are reacting to it. The speakers will also speak about how their careers have developed since their graduation.

Participants will have the opportunity to interact with the speakers, who will be happy to respond to a wide range of questions and comments.

This event is open to all past and present students, researchers and faculty members of Tohoku University, but registration is required.

In addition, the event is being held as part of a special event, “Tohoku University Online Alumni Festival”. More information about this special event will be available on its dedicated website (https://koyusai.shuyukai-tohoku-u.net/).
