History and Mission of Japan Research Center

The Japan Research Center was established in 1994 at the University of Osnabrueck in order to promote scientific research on politics, society, and economy of modern Japan.
The Japan Research Center participates in the educational activities of the University with lectures and seminars in the field of social sciences. Language courses conducted by the Adult Education Centre and the Academic Foreign Office (DAAD) complete the teaching program for students at the University of Osnabrueck.
By supporting academic exchange, the Research Center aims to bring together scholars with a broad spectrum of expertise and to promote collaboration among them.
Cooperation with the local German-Japanese Society and the Adult Education Center (VHS) enables us to present lectures on various subjects to the public.
