The JSPS Alumni Association in Egypt (or “JSPSAAE” for short) was founded in Egypt in 2008 by a circle of former fellows who had been supported by the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science (JSPS), and currently has around 80
members. We have a general assembly for all members once a year when the science forum is held.
