The Royal Society - Daiwa Anglo-Japanese Foundation Joint Project Grants

The Royal Society’s International Exchanges Scheme, formerly known as the  Royal Society – Daiwa Anglo-Japanese Foundation Joint Project Grants are designed for collaborative projects between British and Japanese researchers in the field of science. They are funded by the Foundation and administered by The Royal Society.

Funding, of up to £6,000 per annum for two years, is provided to cover travel, subsistence and research expenses. Eligible projects should include two teams or individuals: one based in the UK and the other based in Japan. A relationship between both parties should already be established prior to making an application and the collaboration should involve bilateral visits between the British and Japanese collaborators.

The Royal Society is the world’s oldest scientific academy in continuous existence, and has been at the forefront of enquiry and discovery since its foundation in 1660. There are about 1,450 Fellows and Foreign Members including 75 Nobel Laureates. Previous Fellows include Isaac Newton, Christopher Wren, Charles Darwin, Ernest Rutherford, and Dorothy Hodgkin.

(Please note that applications for these grants can only come from UK researchers with the approval of their host organisation. This is because The Royal Society must be satisfied that any project involves substantial collaboration between the UK and Japan. Japanese researchers should therefore ask their British partner to submit any application.)
