Welcome to the home page of the "Toshiko Yuasa" France Japan Particle Physics Laboratory (TYL-FJPPL). Information on on-going collaborative projects involving French and Japanese research teams pursuing particle and astroparticle physics, instrumentation R&D, accelerator physics and technology and several other related topics can be found here. Support for staff exchanges and joint training initiatives for students and junior staff can be applied for on a yearly basis. A general workshop is also organised annually to bring together the teams involved. Topical workshop, schools and other special events are also sponsored both in France and Japan. Please see the details below.



The SAKURA program is funded by the JSPS in Japan and by the Ministries of Foreign Affairs and of Education and Research in France. It provides funding for bilateral exchanges between French and Japanese teams of researchers, for up to two years. Exceptionnaly, a third year can be granted. New collaborations involving junior researchers and doctoral students have priority in the selection. The maximum amount of funding is 6000 euros/year for the French teams, and 1000000 Yen for the Japanese teams, covering exclusively travel expenses for mutual visits. The deadline for applying is September 6, 2017. Please see the detailed description here (in French). Information on the cooperation programs supported by the JSPS can be found here (in English and Japanese).


The details on the 2017 call can be consulted here.
Deadline for submission of applications and activity reports : CLOSED


  • The TYL Science Camp for Female High School Students is a joint program of the TYL and KEK Gender Equality Office, organised at KEK with the aim of encouraging young Japanese female students to become interested in science. It involves several activities, including introductory lectures on advanced science results, casual talks by graduate students majoring in science and engineering, visits of research facilities at KEK.The last session was organised at KEK, April 3-4, 2017, in the presence of two of the TYL Directors, Prof. Junji Haba of KEK and Dr. Philip Bambade of CNRS, and included a French speaker, Dr. Marie-Emmanuelle Couprie of CEA.

  • The Toshiko Yuasa Award honors prominent and/or promising Japanese female scientists and is sponsored by the Ochanomizu University in Tokyo and by the TYL. The award aims to encourage the participation of Japanese women in science. The 4th Toshiko Yuasa Award went to Dr. Yuko Motizuki (Riken/Nishina center), who is investigating deep ice cores at the South Pole to study the past history of various extraterrestrial influences on the atmosphere. The gold medal prepared by the TYL was presented by two of the TYL Directors, Prof. Junji Haba of KEK and Dr. Marc Besancon of CEA, at the award ceremony held at the Ochanomizu University, on February 24, 2017 (see picture below).

  • The winner of the 2017 TYL-FJPPL Young Investigator Award is Hiroki Yokoyama, joint PhD student at the universities of Tsukuba and Grenoble, who was rewarded for his outstanding doctoral work in the field of heavy ion physics in the ALICE collaboration, in particular within the HAD_01 project of our France-Japan Laboratory. The award ceremony (see picture below) took place during the 2017 TYL-FJPPL/FKPPL joint annual workshop at IPHC (Strasbourg, France) May 10-12, 2017. More photos are available here: Photos
