Hyper Interdisciplinary Conference Indonesia 2022, Tech Splash: Underpinning Coastal Economic Transition to Optimize Wealth.

The Hyper Interdisciplinary Conference Indonesia will be happening on the 12th of November 2022. The theme for this year is “Blue Archipelago: Revolutionise Indonesian Marine and Coastal Economy”, there will be a total of 4 main sessions with different focuses.

The “Tech Splash” session will be a platform for startups to pitch and share their idea, technology, and product development related to improving the coastal economy and livelihood. The audience will be able to share their feedback on the products or technology to improve the R&D and to have a discussion where a potential collaboration could be created. All presenters will be given 5 minutes to pitch their startups and innovation to the audience, which will comprise various players from government agencies, local and international corporations, researchers and industries. On top of that, this session is made completely FREE OF CHARGE for startups because we believe in investing in new ideas and ventures today to create a better future tomorrow. 

The “Tech Splash” started in Leave a Nest Japan during the 7th Hyper Interdisciplinary Conference in 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.”

Since this is a conference that will involve researchers as well, we highly encourage startups to also prepare an A1-sized poster which will be exhibited to all the attendees.
