RIKEN Alumni Email Service

RIKEN offers an email forwarding service to all RIKEN alumni by providing them with alumni email addresses that are only used for forwarding.

Mail sent to your address will be forwarded to your registered forwarding email address.

This forwarding service is to keep RIKEN-related personnel connected to RIKEN and provide them with the latest RIKEN news and information.

RIKEN considers it important to maintain strong ties with RIKEN alumni as science and technology are developing at a rapid pace.

We hope that many of you will register for this service.
