Ireland pledges research cooperation cash with Japan

Irish and Japanese higher education institutions have agreed to increase collaboration in a number of research areas, with support worth €1.24 million available to assist Irish institutions.

The funding under Science Foundation Ireland’s International Strategic Cooperation Award programme was announced in Tokyo on 2 December during an official visit by Ireland’s prime minister Enda Kenny. The agreement will see a consortium of Irish institutions led by the National University of Ireland Galway join 21 Japanese universities and research institutes to conduct research.

The consortium will focus on six thematic research areas important to the Irish and Japanese researchers such as computer technology, advanced materials and imaging. Similar collaborative agreements under the award programme already exist with China, India and Brazil.
