JSPS London Symposium/Seminar Scheme

JSPS London's primary aims include publicising academic research from Japan and strengthening collaborative research linkages between the UK or Republic of  Ireland (RoI) and Japan. To help achieve these aims, JSPS London has created this scheme to support events organised by members of the JSPS Alumni Association of the UK and RoI or for Japanese Researchers based in the UK or RoI at institutional or departmental level. These events should aim to create high quality collaboration in cutting edge fields or showcase research in areas where Japan and the UK or RoI are world leading. This could be a symposium (for over 50 participants) or smaller scale seminar (for up to 50 participants). Both kinds of events can either focus on UK or RoI-Japan bilateral collaboration or be part of an international conference that aims to develop trusted multilateral partnerships with Japan and the UK and/or RoI at the centre.
