Greeting from the Director


As of April 2024, I have been appointed as the Director of the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science (JSPS) Strasbourg Office. I am thrilled to undertake this role and embark on new challenges.

Since its establishment within the Maison Universitaire France-Japon at the University of Strasbourg in 2001, our office has contributed to fostering academic exchanges between Japan and European countries. Building on the achievements accumulated over the years, I am committed to fulfilling the Strasbourg Office’s objectives and further enhancing our activities.

Our team of members will strive to further promote academic exchanges. We believe in the power of human connections to generate new ideas and collaborative relationships, and we are determined to deepen our academic collaborations.

Furthermore, our office aims to serve as a bridge between the academic communities of Japan and Europe by leveraging the diverse programs offered by JSPS. We hope that these efforts will encourage active exchanges among researchers and students and foster cooperation in the academic field.

We sincerely ask for your support and cooperation. With anticipation for the encounters and collaborative academic advancements that lie ahead, we embark on this new journey.
