Cooperation with European Researchers Associations in Japan

So far, the cooperation has mainly taken place in the context of events organized by the EURAXESS office in Japan. These events included “European Research Day” and “European Research Nights”.

In March 2023, the four researchers associations decided to jointly offer their own events. The first event will be a symposium to be held on October 21, 2023, at the premises of the EU Permanent Representation in Tokyo. Further joint events are planned in addition to individual activities of the four associations in Japan.
