Activities of JSPS Alumni Associations
In Germany, the JSPS Club, established in 1995, advanced its agenda of activities carried out voluntarily by former JSPS fellows. The success of this Alumni Club in Germany has led the way to the other countries. JSPS alumni associations were established one after another in France(2003), the UK(2004), the US(2004), Sweden(2005), Egypt(2008), Eastern Africa(2008), Thailand(2010) and China(2010), in cooperation with JSPS Overseas Offices. In Europe, the European JSPS Alumni Association Board Meetings are held every year.
In addition to these alumni associations affiliated with JSPS’s overseas offices, former JSPS fellows in the countries without JSPS overseas offices have recently established the JSPS Alumni Association in India(2006), Korea(2008), Bangladesh(2009), and Finland(2009).
