If you’re in town on July 13 — I won’t be — this seems worth investigating:

Yukio Sato, adviser and former executive director of the Japan Science and Technology Agency (JST), will discuss “Science and Technology Policy in Japan and JST Activities” at the Library of Congress at 10 a.m. on Thursday, July 13, in Room 119 of the Thomas Jefferson Building, 10 First St. S.E., Washington, D.C.

Sponsored by the John W. Kluge Center and the Science, Technology and Business Division and the Asian Division, this event is free and open to the public.

Currently director general and professor at the International Research and Educational Institute for Integrated Medical Sciences at Tokyo Women’s Medical University, Sato has enjoyed a distinguished career, including serving as deputy director general of both the Ministry of International Trade and Industry and the National Institute of Science and Technology Policy, executive director of the Japan Atomic Energy Research Institute and senior adviser for the Ministry of Planning in Saudi Arabia.
