Ig Nobel Prize Winner Prof. Higashiyama of College of Letters Gives a Lecture in London

Ritsumeikan University hosted a lecture by Professor Atsuki Higashiyama of College of Letters in London on February 24 with the support of the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science (JSPS) London and with the cooperation of the Japan Chamber of Commerce and Industry in the UK. About 60 people attended the lecture, including Japanese government officials and business managers, members of the press, and Japanese and British researchers in the UK.

For Professor Higashiyama, it was the first lecture he gave overseas since winning the Ig Nobel perception prize in September last year. In the past, some scientists received both a Nobel Prize and an Ig Nobel Prize, and the results of research that come up for consideration for an Ig Nobel Prize are said to meet international standards.
