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.
