Associate Professor Seiji Kumagai was appointed as Program Director (PD) for Goal 9 of the Cabinet Office Moonshot R&D Program: ‘Realization of a mentally healthy and dynamic society by increasing peace of mind and vitality by 2050’. The Project Managers (PM) for Goal 9 have now been selected.
A total of 13 research projects, which will take up the challenge of achieving this goal from diverse angles, were selected. These research projects will be able to transcend the walls between the humanities and sciences, and range from molecular biology and neuroscience to the humanities and social sciences. Furthermore, they will integrate the wisdom of humanity, such as traditional wisdom, music, and art. That is, these research projects have the potential to increase peace and vitality on various scales, including individual, group, and societal.
Moonshot Goal 9 as a whole will elucidate the “mechanisms of the mind” at various levels and develop “state transition technology” for the mind, which will be implemented in society to contribute to the well-being of people and society.
