A total of 21 researchers from Australia, selected by the Academy, are heading to Japan on fellowships awarded by the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science (JSPS).
Recipients of eight short-term Invitation Fellowships and one long-term Invitation Fellowship will collaborate with Japanese researchers, attend seminars and give lectures. Twelve researchers, who will travel to Japan for one to two years as part of the JSPS Postdoctoral Fellowships for Foreign Researchers, will conduct cooperative research with leading research groups in universities and other Japanese institutions.
The JSPS awards postdoctoral and invitation fellowships worth up to $2 million to Australian researchers annually. The Academy manages the application process with funding support from the Department of Education and Training.
