Welcome! The JSPS Alumni Club in Denmark (ACD) was established in 2015 by the initiative of former JSPS fellows, with the support of the JSPS Stockholm Office. The ACD organizes symposia on various themes, the Japan Alumni Researcher Assembly, the annual General Assembly and Board Meetings. The ACD also has its own newsletter, which is sent to all members by e-mail. The ACD has since its establishment grown; the first BRIDGE fellow was awarded in 2016, and the first activity seminar was organized in 2017 on the theme “Collaboration and Community-Building in Contemporary Art in Japan and Denmark”.

Message from ACD Board Chair
Are you having important collaborations with Japanese researchers- planned, present or past?- Then ACD may be for you. Our purpose is to promote and facilitate collaboration between Japanese and Danish researchers, with a special focus on the means offered for this purpose by JSPS. In fact, JSPS offers scholarships to both novice and senior scholars, from both Denmark and Japan, as well as other support measures for research collaboration. We regularly advertise seminars and grants offered by JSPS. Everyone is welcome to attend the events we organize and to apply for associate membership.
As the word “Alumni” says, regular members of the club are previous recipients of JSPS grants. ACD helps them exchange information, experience and academic knowledge related to past, ongoing and future collaborations with Japan. Also, a few grants, like the BRIDGE Fellowship Program which is currently awarded annually, can only be applied for by regular members. So, if you are eligible for regular membership, this may be another motivation to apply. Currently, approximately 40 Danish scholars are regular members.
