09 Jan 2006 Education and Science Minister Visits JSPS London Office 

On 9th January 2006, Mr. Kenji Kosaka, Minister of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology, visited the JSPS London Office.

He was in the UK to attend the World Ministerial Seminar on Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) in Schools. During his visit to the Office, Mr. Kosaka received a briefing from its director Prof. Masaru Osanai on JSPS's activities in the UK. He also met with UK JSPS Alumni Association chairman Prof. Peter Sammonds, vice chairman Dr. Martyn Kingsbury, and three former recipients of the Japanese government scholarship for foreign graduate students. In their brainstorming session, they discussed why, except for among some British researchers, it is not generally known in the UK that a very high level of research is conducted in Japan, and agreed that measures such as a web portal should be taken to introduce Japanese universities and research institutes to British researchers and students while letting them know that living in Japan is not so expensive.
