The Leading Initiative for Excellent Young Researchers (LEADER) works to show new career paths to young researchers which they can succeed with, for example in industry circles, while creating through industry, academia, and government a stable and independent position for young researchers who would tackle new areas of research.
This symposium will deepen understanding of LEADER and contribute to the promotion of matching young researchers and research institutions through reports from Excellent Young Researchers (EYRs) and panel discussions by involved parties and experts.
