Junior Experts Exchange Program 2012 "Smart Grids + Renewable Energy"

  • 2012/06/30


Since a couple of years, young scientists from Japan and Germany are invited for a 10 days-visiting program to the other country. The program provides an opportunity for natural scientists to get first-hand information of the research structure, scientific and technological developments by visits to research institutions and companies, contacts to other scientists in related fields of research etc.

On the long run, a bilateral network of young researchers is going to be established which offers points of contacts for further Japanese-German cooperation in various fields.
The program is funded by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (Japan), and the Ministry of Education and Research (Germany).

In 2012, the Junior Experts Exchange Program will focus on smart grid technology for renewable energy.

Invited are up to 8 young researchers (under 40) from research institutes and companies. The program in Germany will take place from September 20 to October 1, a workshop with German alumni of the program is planned for September 29.
Deadline for application is June 30, 2012. Applications should be sent to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Japan (details in the attached information).
