To promote the work of young researchers who will be the leaders of the next generation and to help them develop their management skills, the Front Office of Human Resource Education and Development (FOHRED) is conducting an on-the-job development and support program.
The Support System for the Joint Research of Young, Next-Generation Researchers, part of this on-the-job development and support program, assists young researchers in carrying out the following in Hokkaido: joint research with research institutions, and interdisciplinary joint research in the humanities and sciences.
The following are the FY2020 application guidelines for this support system. If you wish to use the system, please apply by submitting the designated form.
