News General 2021.06.18

On April 14 (Wed) and May 12 (Wed), the Research and Collaboration Support Center held a workshop on KAKENHI (Grants-in-Aid for Scientific Research) to explain the KAKENHI system and provide information on important points when preparing a research plan.

More than 100 researchers and staff participated in each workshop, where lectures were given simultaneously at the venue and online for the entire university by experienced reviewers such as Executive Vice President Koseki (who is also the General Center Director of the Research and Collaboration Support Center), Professor Sato (Dean of the Faculty of Humanities), and Professor Tabata (Dean of the Faculty of Engineering).

The speakers gave detailed explanations on how to select themes and evaluation points, and the participating researchers commented that it was the most easily-understood explanation based on experience they have ever heard and that they will be hoping to use them as a reference for their applications.

The schedule for preparing drafts has also been revised to reflect significant changes in this academic year, including the fact that the application period for KAKENHI has been moved up by one or two months.

The Research & Collaboration Support Center will continue to actively support researchers in applying for KAKENHI, mainly through this workshop and the brushing up of research plans (through the internal review system).
