I gave a short presentation about the establishment of the European branch of kagakusha.net at the 8th Meeting for Japanese Researcher based in the UK hosted by JSPS London on the 28th Jan, 2013. In addition to the announcement, the first project proposal planned as the European branch was presented to the other researchers to ask for their opinions. Please feel free to send me an email to ask any question regarding this branch or the project.

What is Kagakusha Network?

Kagakusha Network (or "Scientist Network") is a group of young Japanese scientists and students who have studied or aspire to study abroad. 

Our aim is first to enhance interdisciplinary communications between Japanese researchers all over the world, and second, to encourage young people in Japan to challenge the world by sharing members' experiences and valuable information with them. 

In the era of expanding globalization, we believe that people who are internationally-minded and are able to flexibly cope with the dynamically changing environment are in need. At the same time, people who are willing to challenge any difficulty with deep specialty are expected. We believe that studying abroad provides a way to achieve it. 

Since its establishment in 2000, the Kagakusha Network has been dedicated to these aims through sending out periodical e-mail newsletters, articles, publications, events, etc. The network is currently run by more than 20 volunteers around the world, and more than 400 people are subscribing our mailing list. 

In 2012, we successfully held our first conference at the Tokyo International Forum. We also announced the establishment of a European branch as well as the launch of various collaborations with different organizations to further promote globalization. Please feel free to contact us if you are interested in being a part of our activities or wish to be a collaborator in the future.
