Japan-America Frontiers of Engineering Symposium

JST holds the Japan-America Frontiers of Engineering Symposium(JAFoE), along with the National Academy of Engineering(NAE) and the Engineering Academy of Japan(EAJ). The aim of JAFoE is to provide a place where young researchers can find new possibilities in their research and development and foster interdisciplinary research. To attain this aim, the JAFoE symposium provides a place where approximately 60 young Japanese and American engineering researchers (45 years old or younger) can exchange personal research information.
