Research Grant Program 2015


Research Grant Program
                                          "Exploring New Values for Society"

Program Objectives

Research Grant Program 2015, titled "Exploring New Values for Society", provides two grant frameworks respectively for joint research projects and individual research projects that can be expected to lead to "creation of new values for society". For both frameworks, we solicit ambitious projects that are founded on creative concepts that reflect a youthful perspective and whose results can help change people's ways of thinking - regardless of their country or region of origin or their social position and circumstances - and can lead to actions that bring about solutions to the issues faced.
