Leave a Nest UK has been incorporated in London on 4th October 2016 as fourth foreign office for Leave a Nest Group.
I am Shohei Michael Maekawa, President of Leave a Nest. UK. I was born in USA and raised in Europe. I studied Zoology for my undergraduate degree and Evolutionary Anthropology for my postgraduate degree, both at University College London. With my experience aboard and passion towards advancement of science and technology, I joined Leave a Nest in 2013 and now here I am.! As I have been working around the world, I realised that answers to many of the unsolved issues can be found by combining technology and knowledge from different parts of the world. However this is not something that can be done alone. I would like to make Leave a Nest UK a place where people who share the same vision as me can gather from all around the world.
In June, 2016, the UK experienced Brexit and we think that the research situation in UK will transfer into a new era. In such a time we believe that the encouragement of research in science and technology is vital. Leave a Nest UK would like to nurture the passion for science and technology, and create many more chances and opportunities for people who pursue their research so that more world-changing discoveries and inventions can be born in the UK.
