The KEK Roadmap Open Symposium was held on July 6, 2020 at KEK with remote connections.

In order to describe the research strategy of KEK for 5 years (2014-2018), the current KEK roadmap was created in 2013, revised in 2016, and updated in 2019. KEK intends to renew the roadmap since the next KEK midterm target and plan period will start from April 2022.

At the symposium, current status and future plans of research projects at KEK were presented and productive discussions were made with more than 300 participants including communities’ members.

After one-year discussion and deliberation in KEK Research Steering Committee and review by KEK Scientific Advisory Committee, the new KEK roadmap will be published in 2021.
