“Junior Forum” events are specially aimed at PhD and postdoctoral students that have participated in JSPS promotion programs like “JSPS Summer Program” or “JSPS Postdoctoral Fellowship”. The name of Junior Event (JE) was changed to “Junior Forum” (JF) in 2012.
Since 2008, the events are always held directly after the “Members Invite Members” events. Different lectures from JSPS Club members provide a good opportunity for the younger generation to exchange views about working conditions in the science realm of Japan.
