Japan Alumni and Researcher Assembly 2017

You are hereby invited to participate in the “Japan Alumni and Researcher Assembly 2017”, scheduled to be held at the Technical University of Denmark (DTU Lyngby Campus) on Friday, March 10, 2017.

The assembly aims to promote networking within the Japan-related research community in Denmark, and to provide a forum for Danish and Japanese researchers, business people and students to meet, discuss new ideas, and promote Japan-related research and student scholarships.

As “innovation” is one of the key fields being promoted during the 150th anniversary celebration of Danish-Japanese diplomatic relations this year, we would like to re-emphasize the importance of collaboration between research environments and business.
This event is co-organized by the Embassy of Japan in Denmark, Tokai University Alumni Association in Denmark, Japan Society for the Promotion of Science (JSPS) Alumni Club in Denmark, and JSPS Stockholm Office, DTU Executive School of Business.
Please note that advance registration is required for participation.
