Following the adoption of the Sakura Science Plan of the Japan Science and Technology Agency (JST), the “India-Japan scientific and technical exchange program for the new generations” was held from January 11th to 20th, 2018. In total, ten students from 5 institutions (University of Delhi, University of Pune, University of Mumbai, Indian Institutes of Technology Bombay, Tata Institute of Fundamental Research) were invited to visit Osaka University. In the campus, the participants visited laboratories of the Departments of Physics and Earth and Space Science, the Museum of Osaka University, the Institute of Laser Engineering, and the Research Center for Nuclear Physics. In addition, they visited companies outside the campus; a wind power plant in Awaji Island, DAIKIN industries Ltd, Panasonic Center OSAKA, Shimadzu Corporation, and HORIBA Ltd. They also had special lectures given by professors in the Departments of Physics and Earth and Space Science and were exposed to some cutting-edge research topics and results. Furthermore, participants had a cultural exchange event with Osaka University students to promote international friendships between the two countries. Through this program, we were able to introduce to the participants from India Japanese science and technology, in the industries and at Osaka University. The overall feedback from the participants showed that they were far more satisfied than expected. We hope that international exchange between India and Japan will develop further in the future.
