Joint Seminars

JSCE has Agreement of Cooperation (AOC) with 31 counterpart societies around the world. Under the AOC, JSCE and those societies organize cooperative activities, exchange technical and scientific information and work together to solve engineering issues with broader perspectives.

In the globalizing world, we consider that it is practical and effective to collaborate with those societies so as to assist the members to expand their opportunites, to contribute to infrastructure development effectively, and facilitate a sustainable socieity. Strengtheing the partnership with the AOC socieites is one of our efforts.

The below listed is just some examples of the joint seminars that JSCE has held.  The Society also organizes regular basis seminars in cooperation with its AOC societies such as KSCE (Korea)-JSCE Concrete Seminars, CICHE (Taiwan)-KSCE-JSCE Seminars on Hybrid Structures. Recently the Society has had a seminar with MACE (Mongolia), and will plan more discussion opportunities in a joint effort with its partner socieites.

The Society implements the various forms of international cooperation such as joint seminar, workshop, technical exchange and post-disaster study and disaster recovery assistance, and will enhance this effort to be more responsive to the needs of society.

International Activities Committee (IAC) a major role in JSCE's internatioanl activity continues its effort working with committees in Research and Project Coordination Division.  It has received support from International Scientific Exchange Fund since 2004.
