JSPS Washington Office plans to hold "The 5th Japan-US Science Forum in Boston" on Saturday, November 14 in cooperation with the Consulate-General of Japan in Boston and UJA. Due to the current situation, the forum will be held virtually.
"The Japan-US Science Forum in Boston" was inaugurated in 2016, aiming to create an interdisciplinary meeting opportunity that stimulates collaborations between researchers to solve world-wide problems.
