BIRDS International Workshop

BIRDS International Workshop (BIW) is an annual event that started in 2016. Till date 1 BIW has been organised and 3 more have been planned. Necessary funds  have been secured.

“The purpose of these workshops is to strengthen the “BIRDS Network”, which is a human network of all BIRDS participants. Doing projects is useful — but a project is always ephemeral (一日の命の、一日限りの、短命な、束の間の、はかない).  Projects come and go. Hence, we need a much better basis for staying connected and engaged with each other.  Our network is our primary asset — more so than our hardware, software, and technical knowledge.”

-G. Maeda
