The European Science Foundation has signed a new extended Memorandum of Understanding with the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science (JSPS). The document was formally signed by Professor Bertil Andersson, Chief Executive of the Foundation, and Professor Motoyuki Ono, President of JSPS.
The Memorandum provides for the close cooperation between both organisations for the organisation of ‘Frontier Science Meeting Series for Young Researchers’, which bring about 80 young researchers from both Europe and Japan together with more senior scientists to debate and exchange views on key topics at the cutting edge of research. These conferences, led by eminent researchers from Europe and Japan, normally take place each year, alternately in Europe and Japan.
The new agreement provides for Follow-up Workshops to be held about 2 to 3 years after each conference to allow for the subject to be explored further in the light of new advances. Participation in the Follow-up Workshops is principally by young researchers who took part in the first conference and who can demonstrate significant progress in their research and who have, ideally, developed collaborative projects with their colleagues from the partner region/country.
