2020 Tohoku University-Tsinghua University Collaborative Research Fund Supported Projects

Tohoku University and Tsinghua University will support four joint research projects through a collaborative fund. The fund was established based on an agreement between Tohoku University and Tsinghua University to promote and encourage joint research. The first round call was made in January 2019.

This is the second round call, to which there were six applications. Following a joint review carried out by the two universities, four projects have been selected. The projects, which will be supported for two academic years beginning in April 2020, are expected to further develop joint research between the two universities.
