Opportunity profile: A chance to do research in Japan

The Canon Foundation in Europe offers researchers the chance to spend up to a year working in Japan. Although the scheme is open to anyone, Suzy Cohen, representative of the foundation in the Netherlands, tells Cristina Gallardo that humanities researchers tend to take the lion’s share of the awards.

The Canon Foundation in Europe’s Research Fellowships programme offers 15 European and Japanese PhD students and early-career researchers the chance to work at a host institution in the other nation with grants of between €22,500 to €27,000, per year, pro rata. The call is open until 15 September each year and the earliest start date is 1 January the following year.

According to the foundation’s statistics, 297 Research Fellowships were granted between 1990 and 2013, with 179 from Europe and 118 from Japan. Of the European grantees, 25 came from Italy, 24 from Spain and 23 were from each of Germany and France.
