ysfFIRST: The Yokohama Science Frontier Forum for International Research in Science and Technology 


   YSFH collaborates with universities and affiliated institutions to foster science and technology specialists who will lead the future of Japan. Our students not only

study math and science but also gain a broad knowledge of global issues through understanding

concepts such as sustainable development goals (SDGs). Setting their own themes to deal with such issues, the students study how to use the power of science to cope with global problems.

 Each year the international scientific forum called ysfFIRST is held as a place to present research on global issues using the power of science. Gifted students from

not only within Japan but also abroad are invited to show the fruits of their research through poster or oral presentations.
