JSPS Alumni Club
Every year, researchers from all over the world come to Japan under the JSPS Fellowship Programs or Scientist Exchanges. After completing their tenures, some of them return to their home countries, others remain in Japan and still others go on to different countries to pursue their research activities. These researchers JSPS considers as valuable assets in advancing research between Japan and its counterpart countries. In order to retain contact with them and exchange contacts among them, JSPS has launched several alumni clubs in its counterpart countries.
JSPS Stockholm Office has two connceting Alumni Clubs, JSPS Finland Alumni Club (FAC) and JSPS Sweden Alumni Club (SAC).
SAC was launched and held its first meeting in the beginning of 2004, and FAC was launched in 2007 and inaugurated 2009 during this time a number of meetings and seminars have already been held.
The objective of the Alumni Clubs is to promote scientific exchange between Japan and the counterpart country. A General Assembly is held every year and some bi-lateral seminars in various scientific fields.
