International Exchange

International Exchange


International exchange promotion activities among ASEAN countries are started by the 21st century COE program from 2006 through establishing the Asian academic network named SEE Forum (Sustainable Energy and Environment Forum). In FY2016, SEE Forum meeting was held in Thailand to promote the international exchange as well as collaboration research between Japan and Asia regions. In Thailand we also have the Eco-Energy and Materials Science and Engineering Symposium (EMSES) in almost every year in cooperation with Rajamangala Universityof Technology Thanyaburi from 2001. In FY2016, 13th EMSES was held in Udon Thani, Thailand and attracted about than 100 regional researchers in Thailand as well as near by countries. By this cooperation we foster energy researchers in ASEAN countries.

These international activities among ASEAN region have been appreciated by counterpart universities, research institute in Asia, Japanese government and UNESCO. In this connection we started to cooperation with UNESCO-COMPETENCE program from 2009 in cooperation with UNESCO Jakarta. As the extension activity we started the ODA-UNESCO Assist program on Energy for Sustainable Development in Asia (Vietnam in 2011, Laos in 2012,Cambodia in 2013, and Myanmar in 2014,

In 2012 based on the MOU between Kyoto University and AUN which was initiated IAE activities, the AUN ‒ KU Student Mobility Program towards Human Security Development(HSD) has been selected to accelerate internationalization of university. In 2015, the Japan ASEAN Science and Technology Innovation Platform (JASTIP) has been adopted in JST SICORP. We have started to establish the collaboration research platform in the field of Energy and Environment.


JSPS/NSFC Bilateral Collaboration Research Program "Research on Coherent Synchrotron Radiation and Super-radiation Free Electron Laser based on Ultra-Short Electron Bunches"

This collaboration research aims at developing intense coherent radiations from high brightness electron beams in cooperation with Japan (Kyoto University and Tohoku University) and China (University of Science and Technology China, and Peking University). Japanese team will mainly work on experimental study on generation of ultra-short bunch electron beams and coherent radiations. Chinese team will mainly work on theoretical study of these topics as well as development of simulation code. In Kyoto University, the existing 40 MeV electron linac where we can generate intense coherent synchrotron radiation and a newly installed small photocathode rf-gun based THz radiation machine will be used for this program. In Tohoku University, the originally designed thermionic rf-gun based linac will be studied in this program. In Peking University, the super-conducting linac which can generate strong coherent radiation will be studied. In University of Science and Technology Chine, theoretical studies will be carried out to understand the generation of ultra-short bunch electron beams with rather low energy (a few to 50 MeV) as well as generation of coherent super-radiation including development of simulation code.
