JSPS Fellowship awarded to Gabriele Santambrogio
The Japan Society for the Promotion of Science (JSPS) was established in 1932. Since then, JSPS has been carrying out a vast array of programmes that are essential to promoting scientific research.
The programme "Inviting Excellent Researchers from Other Countries to Japan" was conceived to help advance the overseas researchers' activities and to promote science and internationalization in Japan. It offers to overseas researchers, having excellent achievements, the opportunity to cooperate with researchers in Japan.
The programme consists of different kinds of fellowships. Researchers are supported by JSPS to spend a period of time (weeks, months or even years) in Japan.
The application to host Gabriele Santambrogio in Japan for the "Invitational Fellowships for Research in Japan" was submitted by Professor Masahiko Ichihashi of the Toyota Technological Institute. This fellowship is for mid-career and senior researchers.
Gabriele Santambrogio completed his studies in Berlin, where he took his PhD in physics at the Freie Universität.
In 2007-2008, he held a postdoc position at the Genesis Research Institute in Tokyo and from 2009 to 2014 he was again in Berlin as group leader at the Fritz-Haber-Institut, Max-Planck-Gesellschaft.
In 2014, he came back to Italy and became researcher first for the National Institute of Optics (INO) and then for the National Institute of Metrological Research (INRIM) and the European Laboratory for Non-Linear Spectroscopy (LENS).
The JSPS Fellowship will enable Gabriele Santambrogio to stay some weeks in Japan, where he will discuss the possibility to start a scientific cooperation with the Japanese Institute.
