URA Activities (B Menu)International Provision of Technical Expertise


Program overview

This is the program to support researchers who aim to obtain large overseas research funds. Specifically, in cooperation with department administrative offices in charge, KURA provides information through information sessions, review application forms (in terms of English writing and/or specialized contents) and support signing and accounting procedures with regard to the research funds such as Horizon 2020, National Institutes of Health, and AXA Research Fund. We support not only large research funds, but also other overseas funds that individuals apply for (Harvard Yenching Program, Abe Fellowship, etc).
