Applications being accepted for International Joint Research Programs (Programs for 2014~15)


As part of its academic initiatives, Osaka University established the Program for Promoting International Joint Research, through which currently 15 projects are being conducted. (To view selected projects, go here.)

Osaka University is now seeking applications for projects starting in the next academic year. Application deadline: February 3, 2014

This program supports joint research by international researchers and Osaka University researchers involved in advanced research. Support from this program goes beyond merely providing funds for the research being conducted. It also provides travel support and expenses for employing additional researcher(s) and travel expenses for young researcher(s) of the invited international researcher. Thus, even when the invited international researcher is out of Japan, joint research can continue.

This program is a first step toward the establishment of international joint labs and makes possible seminars and lectures featuring the invited international researcher, thereby also greatly contributing to the globalization of education at OU.

This program provides the projects selected with travel support and an honorarium for the international researcher, travel expenses for joint research group members, and support for employing additional researcher(s).
