The Main Purpose
RCAST and IIS have established “Young Researchers’ Challenge Support Program”, funded by University of Tokyo Edge Capital (UTEC), in order to encourage young researchers to develop their abilities further internationally.
This program is providing financial support for young researchers in all research fields at Komaba Research Campus, such as natural science, engineering, humanities and social science, in order to expand their research sphere through their experiences to collaborate with researchers of other countries. This program covers participants’ transportation and accommodation expenses. Participants must submit “Planning Sheet” before departure and “Report Sheet” after returning home. Oral presentation is mandatory so that participants shall be able to further this program’s activation.
Candidates must be graduate students in doctoral or master courses, senior student (B4) of undergraduate, postdoctoral researchers, or research associates who belong to RCAST or IIS. Project postdoctoral researchers should confirm their own effort rate. For more detail, go to Guideline".
