Cooperation with European Researchers Associations in Japan
The JSPS Club has been collaborating for several years with the 3 European associations representing researchers working in Japan from France, Italy, and Spain. They are the following associations:
- The French Students and Researchers Organization in Japan (Sciencescope)
- The Association of Italian Researchers in Japan (AIRJ)
- The Association of Spanish Researchers in Japan (ACE Japon)
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.
