Welcome to the second edition of OIST Update, which covers the activities at the OIST Graduate University during the month of October. This was a month full of events. At the meeting of the Board of Governors it was decided to go ahead with employing a university planner to give advice on the potential expansion of OIST from a 50 faculty university with 100 graduate students to a 300 faculty university catering for 1000 students. After the meeting members of the Board travelled to Tokyo for a face-to-face meeting with Prime Minister Shinzo Abe. This OIST Update also features some of the excellent science research at OIST and highlights the university’s rich cultural program. Please enjoy the October OIST Update.
