We strive to promote world-class excellence in our researchers' activities, which in turn enhances the university's overall research capabilities. Our efforts include establishing new locations to pursue cutting-edge research, developing next-generation fields, and supporting basic research.
Acquisition of funding from ministries and public institutions are an essential factor to successful research. URAs support researchers in the pre-award tasks of project planning, design, coordination, and proposal submission.

Tokyo Tech manages funds catering to various purposes, including awards for early-career researchers and financial support for projects with the potential to lead to establishment of research hubs. Please do not hesitate to consult us if you are considering applying for internal funds and wish to request our support.
Collaboration among researchers who excel in their respective disciplines sparks the emergence of new fields. URAs work to facilitate such collaboration by supporting interdisciplinary research projects and providing Tokyo Tech's matching service.
This matching service enables researchers to find collaborators through exchange of information on research needs, ideas, and methodologies.
Strategically established and unique to Tokyo Tech, these cross-organizational entities with specific research agendas are set up to form the foundation of international research hubs.
After a project has been awarded funding, we provide the following post-award support.
Information on current large-scale projects supported by URAs can be found at the sites linked below.

To support international dissemination of Tokyo Tech research, we offer assistance in all stages of the authorship process, from preparing your first draft to submitting the final version for publication.
To help researchers seeking to improve their scientific writing skills, we organize workshops where native English-speaking lecturers provide insight on best practices in manuscript submission and hands-on training in writing papers in English. Workshops are divided into beginner and intermediate levels.
We hold seminars on authorship and science communication with publishers such as Science, Nature, and IEEE, creating opportunities for researchers to meet face-to-face with editors and other publishing specialists.
