The JANET Forum 2021 will be held on November 10-12.
The theme of JANET Forum 2021 on “International Exchange During the COVID-19 Pandemic: Planning ahead for the next few years” provides a unique opportunity for dialogue and exchange among leading Japanese and European universities and research institutions. Specifically, participating Japanese and European universities and academic institutions, as well as affiliated researchers, will present about their universities and topics of interest to promote discussions on the possibilities of collaboration, and will be able to participate in one-to-one dialogues in virtual networking sessions. Through these activities, we hope to deepen and develop international exchange between Japanese and European universities.
Each participating institution will be able to submit introductory video presentations or posters for on-demand viewing.
