Record-breaking horde of delegates welcomed by Bristol uni
BRISTOL University has welcomed a record-breaking 90 academic delegates from a leading Japanese university as it forges a pioneering international research collaboration.
A high-powered contingent from Kyoto University travelled to the city this week to discuss how the latest thinking and technologies could solve some of the planet's biggest challenges.
It is believed to be the biggest symposium of its kind ever to be held in the UK, reflecting the growing importance of international partnerships to tackle global research problems.
Kyoto University is one of the top global research universities and is highly-regarded for its academic excellence, being placed 20th in the Times Higher Education World Reputation Rankings. It has produced eight Nobel Prize laureates, including Professor Shinya Yamanaka, who won the Nobel Prize in physiology or medicine in October.

Keiichi Hayashi, the Japanese Ambassador to the UK, and Bristol mayor George Ferguson are taking part in discussions about how both universities can share knowledge, resources and links with industry.
Joint research projects are focussing on major issues such as predicting and tackling natural disasters and the development of interactive robots.
Professor Paul Bates, director of the Cabot Institute at the university, said: "This collaboration brings together leading thinkers in the field of natural hazards from both Japan and Britain – two countries with a strong desire to reduce the risk of harm to their people, infrastructure and economy by better planning."
