Japanese Research Funding: the view from inside the JSPS

Cornwallis East SR1 

In February last year we ran a Global Research Opportunities Workshop (GROW) focussing on opportunities for collaboration and exchange with Japan. Following on from this I am delighted to say that we will be hosting a colleague from one of the main Japanese funders, the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science (JSPS), Naomi Hasegawa. She is spending a couple of weeks with us to understand the UK higher education environment, and how the management of research works within a UK university.

As part of her visit she will be giving an insight into the work of the JSPS, the funding it offers, and how it assesses proposals. JSPS offers a broad range of funding, including International Fellowships for Research in Japan, which are open to academics at any career stage.

As ever it’s free and open to all, and a light lunch will be available. However, do let me know if you intend to come so that I can make sure both room and catering are appropriate.
