Every year, Egyptian scientists go to Japan under the JSPS Fellowship Programs. These research fellows play a very significant and crucial role in strengthening and tying-up the bilateral relations between Egypt and Japan. In order to retain contact with Egyptian JSPS researchers and their host scientists in Japan, an Egyptian JSPS Alumni Association has been established with direct support and guidance from JSPS Office in Cairo. In this alumni association, previous as well as current JSPS fellows can become a member. We are heartily welcoming Egyptian scientists who have awarded JSPS fellowships to join as a member of this association. We will be honored to present membership to them who are interested to join our alumni association activities. The objective of the Egyptian JSPS Alumni Association is to promote scientific exchange, research and cultural collaboration between Egypt and Japan, to encourage collaborative work between the JSPS fellows and host professors, and provide necessary information for Egyptian JSPS fellows for having a hassle free life in Japan. We are inviting all former Egyptian JSPS fellows (including current fellows), who are interested to join in our alumni association activities as members. Let us act as a catalyst for a more fruitful Egyptian-Japanese scientific and cultural relationships.

Association’s Aim

  1. To provide personal and expert guidance to young researchers under JSPS Postdoctoral Fellowship for Foreign Researchers and to support Japanese researchers working in Egypt.
  2. To exchange information amongst the Association’s members.
  3. To conduct joint activities with academic institutions and science promotion agencies.
  4. To collect and disseminate information regarding science, technology, society and culture.
  5. To conduct other appropriate activities.
