Grants Factory: An Introduction to Japanese Research Funding.


After the success of the first Global Research Opportunities Workshop (GROW) in November, Research Services and International Development will be running a second event that will focus on opportunities for research collaboration with Japan.

A number of organisations exist to encourage research with or about Japan. Funding is varied, and can be for visits or exchanges, or for a fully fledged project. However, the landscape can be somewhat confusing and this is a chance to better understand the differences between the funders and decide which is right for you. 

There’s been a good response so far, but if you’re planning to come along and haven’t been in touch already can you please let me know so that I can ensure that we have allowed for enough room and catering?
