Science Counselor Shimasaki met last week with a group of students from The George Washington University who recently visited Japan as part of a space policy-themed Project trip! The event, held at the JAXA Washington DC Office, included a discussion about Japan-US research collaboration and encouraging partnerships between the government and the private sector.

With insight from attendees such as Dr. Henry Hertzfeld, Director of the Space Policy Institute at GWU, the meeting also provided an opportunity to discuss the roles of institutions in both countries, including the Embassy, which often acts as a go between among various stakeholders related to space projects.
