Activity Seminars

Regular members of the alumni clubs can organize activity seminars with financial support by JSPS Stockholm. The purpose of these seminars is:

  • To maintain and encourage contact between JSPS Alumni Club members
  • To strengthen the members' relationships with Japan and Japanese researchers
  • To provide information about and to promote JSPS Fellowships

  • The BRIDGE Fellowship

    The BRIDGE Fellowship offers regular members of the alumni clubs an opportunity to revisit Japan for the purpose of creating, sustaining and strengthening collaborative relations with Japanese colleagues.

    The alumni clubs organize networking events for alumni, researchers/students interested in Japan, as well as Japanese researchers. These events provide an opportunity to make friends with fellow researchers and to exchange ideas.

    JSPS has alumni associations in 20 countries with approximately 8,000 members around the world. For more information about other JSPS alumni clubs, please visit JSPS head office
