The idea to increase activities that aim solely on network building amongst members, has grown stronger over time. This is particularly true considering that also extraordinary members of the JSPS Club could become persons who care about the scientific exchange between Japan and the German-speaking area, without being former JSPS or STA fellows.
That is why the event series “Members Invite Members” was started in 2003. The event provides that an JSPS Club member invites all other members to her/his workplace and offers a scientific and cultural program, if possible with relation to Japan.
The event does not take place during the years of anniversary symposia in Japan.
