Regional Groups

Intent and purpose of our regional groups is the establishment of a network with persons and institutions that are Japan-related or interested in Japan, as well as the promotion of scientific cooperation between Japan and Germany in the region concerned. Everyone interested in Japan is cordially invited to participate in the various activities of the regional groups. A membership in the JSPS Club is not neccessary.

The JSPS Club hosts so far 6 regional groups: in the metropolitan areas of Stuttgart, Munich, Rhein-Ruhr, Rhein-Main-Neckar, Berlin-Brandenburg and in Thüringen/Halle-Leipzig. All regional groups consist of JSPS Club members who are living in that region, as well as persons and institutions of the region that are interested in an exchange with Japan.

Events of the regional groups are varying and manifold. There may be excursions, lecture evenings, social gatherings, visits of cultural events, and much more. If you are interested, please get in touch with the responsible contact person.
