The ambassador is working actively to promote research and personnel exchanges between Japan and Slovak and particularly interested in our effort for globalization and how to recruit and receive a researcher from overseas at NIMS.
During the meeting with President Ushioda, they exchanged opinion about the common issues including energy and rare-earth for the both countries poor in natural resources. They also discussed about future collaboration between NIMS and Slovakian academic society and how to work together for overcoming the common issues.
