Support for Skill Development of Early Career Researchers

Towards research activity in the next generation, researchers have crossed numerous unexplored areas through research such as international joint research, interdisciplinary research, industry-academia collaboration. No one knows unexplored areas next-generation researchers will head into.

KURA Supporting Program for the Next Generation of Scholars is hosting seminars, and compiles and dismisses useful information based on survey and analysis on needed supports.

Researchers in the middle of their careers, who are responsible for the next generation, are constantly moving among research sites. Through supporting early career researchers, KURA catches up diversifying research activities and assists to revitalize their research.
