The 1st NIBB-MPIZ Joint Symposium "Japanese-German Symposium on Evolution and Development"

Venue Max Planck Institute for Plant Breeding Research, Cologne, Germany
Date Aug. 25-27, 2009

基礎生物学研究所とマックス・プランク植物育種学研究所によって締結された学術交流協定の事業の一環として、第一回植物科学合同シンポジウム” Japanese-German Symposium on Evolution and Development”が2009年8月25日~26日、ドイツ・ケルンにて開催されました。

 2009年5月に基礎生物学研究所とドイツMax Planck Institute for Plant Breeding Research (MPIPZ) との間で5年間の国際連携協定が締結されたのを受け、2009年8月25日・26日にMPIPZで開催された「Japanese-German Symposium on Evolution and Development 進化と発生日独シンポジウム」に参加する機会をいただいた。日本からは公募で選ばれた、京都大学、奈良先端大学院大学、理化学研究所植物科学研究センターの若手研究者も参加した。
 シンポジウム翌日の27日もMPIPZに滞在した。午前は日本人研究者が個別に興味のあるMPIPZの研究室を訪問する機会を得た。このように1 対1で話をすることでより深い議論を行うことができ、新しい共同研究や研究分野が芽生えることを期待できると思った。また、私個人MPIPZ の中林一美研究員の案内で研究所内にある植物培養温室を見学させてもらった。非常に沢山の温室があり、専属のスタッフによって管理運営がなされていると聞き、あらためて植物科学研究での培養スペースの重要性を感じるとともにうらやましくも思った。午後は、MPIPZ に隣接する圃場見学を行った。圃場には作物を中心に、様々な品種や原種が多数栽培されており、普段目にすることのない植物を見る機会に恵まれた。
 今回のシンポジウムに参加して、1対1で話をする時間を多く確保されているとお互いの研究や人柄を知ることが出来て、新しい共同研究が生まれてくる可能性が高いと感じた。(立松 圭)

 NIBB formalized an Agreement with Max-Planck Institute for Plant Breeding Research (MPIZ, at Cologne, Germany) in April, 2009. This agreement aims to promote intellectual, educational and technological exchange between researchers and students of Japan and Germany by joining NIBB and MIPZ as national hubs of scientific cooperation in the field of plant science. As the first joint activity, a Japanese- German Symposium on Evolution and Development was held at MPIZ in Cologne from August 25 to 26.


 NIBB began gathering applicants who wished to attend the symposium and are planning possible collaborative research with researchers of MPIZ through e-mail networks, and selected seven researchers from the applicants. At the symposium the Japanese delegation, consisting of the seven applicants and five PIs of NIBB plant science laboratories, participated in discussions with researchers and students of MPIZ, Cologne University, and other universities and institutes of Germany. After the symposium, on the morning of August 27, individual talks were held between Japanese and German researchers with the aim of starting possible collaborative research. In the afternoon of August 27, Japanese researchers visited the Demonstration Garden and Wissenschaftsscheune (Science Barn) of MIPZ, which was founded for the purpose of giving the public an opportunity to experience several aspects of plant science including Mendel’s law, domestication of crops, and GMO plants.


 As a continuing activity, NIBB supports the traveling costs of three Japanese researchers who visit MIPZ for collaborative research projects which arose from attending the Symposium.
