Briefing at Aix-Marseille University
On 3 July, the JSPS Strasbourg Office held a JSPS program briefing at Aix-Marseille University (AMU) in Marseille, the capital city of Southern France situated on the Mediterranean coast.

In the briefing, members of the Strasbourg Office introduced JSPS and its international exchange programs, with special focus on JSPS’s Postdoctoral Fellowships for Research in Japan, to an audience of students, postdocs and young researchers. After which, Dr. Giuseppe Di Molfetta and Dr. Philippe Mossé, both members of the JSPS French Alumni Association, shared their personal experiences in talking about their stays in Japan under JSPS’s invitation fellowships and how after coming back to France they have applied their Japan experiences to their research activities.

The Q&A session that followed these interesting presentations added to the fruitfulness of the briefing in that the nature of the questions conveyed a concrete interest in research in Japan and JSPS programs. It was asked, for example, how host researchers are secured when going to Japan to do research under JSPS’s invitational fellowships, and what differences there are in the fellowship selection ratio among various fields of research.

After the briefing, our hosts were kind enough to give the Strasbourg Office staff an observation tour around the facilities of AMU’s Institute for Advanced Study (IMéRA). Also visiting its Maison méditerranéenne des sciences de l’homme (MMSH) and Mediterranean Institute of Oceanography (MIO), the staff got a good look at the high level of research being carried out at the university.

The day after our visit, the Strasbourg Office received a letter by email from the university thanking us warmly for our briefing and informing us that our pamphlets on JSPS’s international exchange programs were being distributed throughout the campus.

【Maison Ferber】 Madame Christine Ferber’s comfitures are world-widely appreciated. Her products are not only served for breakfast at luxury hotels in Paris but a small pot of them is also sold in Tokyo department stores for a price of more than 2,700 JPY (=20 EUR). Contrary to such a stellar reputation, her original store is a tiny groceries shop located in Niedermorschwihr, a small village with a 400-person population in Alsace. As it is only groceries store in the village, it’s used by the local residents to supply their everyday needs. Upon entering the shop, you will be welcomed by a wall of pots, each temping you to try its ingredients: Ruby grapefruits and rose petal, Alsatian rhubarb and vanilla, Banana and passion fruits, etc. etcetera.
