2015 International Joint Research Promotion Program

As a measure for promoting its academic initiatives in 2013, Osaka University established the International Joint Research Promotion Program. The university selected 15 programs in 2013 and 7 in 2014. Currently, 22 programs are being conducted.

In the International Joint Research Promotion Program, Osaka University provides the projects selected with funding to assist in hiring research personnel and also for covering travel expenses of young researchers in coming to the project lab at OU so that, even when the invited international researcher is out of Japan, joint research can continue. Osaka University provides the projects selected with travel support and an honorarium for the international researcher, travel expenses for OU faculty members, and support for employing additional researcher(s).

2015 Support for Short-term Labor Costs

In order to further promote international joint research, this program supplies support for the costs of inviting outstanding international researchers to OU. Currently, OU is seeking projects to be conducted under this program. This program will not only promote further research, but also make possible seminars and lectures featuring the invited international researchers, thereby also greatly contributing to the globalization of education at OU. The university will support employment costs and round-trip transportation expenses for international researchers who will be involved in selected projects. In this program, in principle, international researchers will be employed under the cross-appointment system; however, in some cases, they will be employed not under the cross-appointment system, but as full-time specially appointed faculty members.
