German scientists set up platform to help Japanese colleagues

Initiative of the Leibniz Association, together with other organizations

Scientists of the Leibniz Association, together with colleagues from other organizations, have set up an initiative to help Japanese scientists, whose work is endangered by the devastating impact of the quake and the tsunami. Nippon Science Support Network was established as an internet-based platform www.nipponsciencesupport.net where German institutes can offer funding resources, exchange schemes and open positions for visiting students and research fellows from Japan.

The scientists, research institutions and scientific agencies wish to send a strong signal to Japanese colleagues that concerted efforts are being pursued to intensify and support scientific education, as well as research activities between the two countries.

The initiative and realisation of the platform including a Japanese translation came from Sascha Wiswedel, Steve Goyette, Yasuhiro Murakawa, Toshiaki Kogame, Fred Wouters, and Phil Selenko.
