Following the award ceremony, the five winners came together for a panel discussion on the theme of "The Role of Diversity in the Convergence of Science." During the panel talk, they shared their perspectives on the importance of inclusive research in eliminating prejudice and inequality, thereby fostering the development of science and technology while strengthening reliability and consensus within the field.
