Internal Funds Acquisition

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.

Interdisciplinary Research

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.

Interactive Bulletin Board System – Tokyo Tech CollaboMaker

This matching service enables researchers to find collaborators through exchange of information on research needs, ideas, and methodologies.

Research Publication Support

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.

Authorship Workshops

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.

Seminars on Publishing and Science Communication

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.
