Institutional Supports for Overseas Researchers

Research Acceleration Unit of ASHBi, consisting of skilled professionals (research coordinators), provides a support program to resolve the problems which foreign investigators face when they coming to Japan. We have established a platform run by the research coordinators and English-speaker secretaries to provide administrative supports (e.g. expensing, recruiting, and application submitting) when foreign investigators start their research activity at ASHBi. For more information about this platform, visit the web page below.

Furthermore, we provide necessary support for visas, arrival and living in Japan for researchers and their
families in collaboration with the Overseas Research Support Office of Kyoto University Institute for Advanced Study (ORSO-KUIAS). For detailed information about visas, visit Kyoto University International Service office website.
