On October 27 and 28, the University of Strasbourg-RIKEN 20th Anniversary Workshop: Biology-Chemistry-Physics was held in Strasbourg. The workshop was held to commemorate two decades of partnership between the two institutes, beginning in 1996 when RIKEN signed a research agreement with Louis Pasteur University, one of the three universities that were reformed into the University of Strasbourg in 2009. At the workshop, six researchers from each of the partners gave presentations in the fields of biology, chemistry, and physics, with an aim to promoting broad cooperation in the future. The workshop attracted a diverse audience, who engaged in an enthusiastic discussion.
