BRIDGE Fellowship

 JSPS BRIDGE Fellowship provides opportunities for overseas researchers who have conducted research activities under JSPS International Fellowships for Research in Japan or other JSPS programs to re-visit Japan to create, sustain and/ or strengthen research collaborations with Japanese colleagues. The objective is to build strong networks among researchers in Japan and other countries through a variety of activities. These include former JSPS fellows visiting their past host institutions in Japan, or coming to Japan to plan or implement joint research projects and seminars, to offer training or lectures for young researchers, or to prepare or attend scientific conferences and research meetings.
In the UK and RoI, based on applications by individual researchers, candidates are recommended to JSPS’s Head Office by JSPS Alumni Associations of the UK and Republic of Ireland (via JSPS London Office).
