This “Study in Japan Fair in Paris 2014” aimed to further encourage academic exchange between Japan and France by disseminating information widely on research and educational activities at Japanese universities, entrance exams, and scholarships for studying in Japan, to high school and university students and others interested in studying in Japan. Meiji University hosted a study in Japan fair in Paris last year for the first time and organized the 2nd one this year.

Also the Embassy of Japan in France (Ambassade du Japon en France), the Japan Cultural Institute in Paris (Maison de la culture du Japon à Paris), and Japan Society for the Promotion of Science (JSPS) Strasbourg Office opened booths to communicate closely with visitors.
