    Mathematical Formulation of ISO 34502 Hazardous Scenarios for Automated Driving Systems
    To make the automated driving technologies widely accepted in society, merely improving the safety of automated driving vehicles is insufficient. It is necessary to guarantee their high level of safety and explain this to society to persuade society to accept automated driving vehicles operating on public roads. In Japan and abroad, …
  • Multistep topological transitions among meron and skyrmion crystals in a centrosymmetric magnet

    Multistep topological transitions among meron and skyrmion crystals in a centrosymmetric magnet
    Topological swirling spin textures, such as skyrmions and merons, have recently attracted much attention as potential building blocks for high-density magnetic information devices. Controlling the transformation between different types of these quasiparticles is an important challenge. To date, these transitions have mostly been limited to a few …
  • Discovery of the mechanism for repairing double-stranded DNA breaks on chromatin

    April 10, 2024

    Discovery of the mechanism for repairing double-stranded DNA breaks on chromatin
    RAD51 plays a central role in the double-strand break (DSB) repair induced by mutagens such as radiation, and the mechanism by which RAD51 initiates DSB repair on chromatin has been elucidated.
    The N-terminal domain of RAD51 is essential for the nucleosome binding and many mutations in this domain have been …

Overseas Branch Offices

The JST overseas offices are strategically located to capture the latest science and technology trends in their respective regions, actively promote the global activities of JST-funded Japanese researchers and leverage global networks to enhance and internationalize Japan's S&T.

  • Paris Office

    We are JST's first-established overseas office, responsible for a wide range of countries within Europe and Africa. We negotiate and coordinate with relevant organizations and support the growth of JST's European operations, where science cooperation is often multi-layered and complex. We also play a vital role in transmitting local information back to JST headquarters, and are actively expanding our network of related organizations in order to improve Japan's S&T presence in Europe.
