At Hyper Interdisciplinary Conference in Singapore, we will have a slot of back-to-back pitching! In the session, 9 speakers will be presenting, each of them having ONLY 3 minutes to introduce their technology or research. Come prepared to listen to mind-blowing technologies from a wide area.

Technology Splash started in Leave a Nest Japan during the 7th Hyper Interdisciplinary Conference on March 2018. It aims to supply a platform for all presenters, regardless of their industries or background as researchers or business ventures, to introduce their research and business to all participants. On the other hand, the participants will be able to learn about a different field with the knowledge and passion of the presenters.

Quoted from Japan:

“In a series of short presentations, the heat of the presenter and the heat of the participants collide, creating new splashes of research ideas and collaborations. That is technology splash.”

Technology splash will give opportunity for presenters to get possible collaboration partners to talk to you to learn more!

The presentation format will be as follows:

  1. Only presentation slide allowed with no animation or video
  2. 3 minutes presentation
  3. No question will be asked nor presentation judged
