Externally Funded Research

In order to conduct research on the languages and cultures of Asia and Africa, the staff of ILCAA apply for various external funds, such as Grant-in-Aid for Scientific Research (KAKENHI) (Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (MEXT)) and other research grants by private organizations. Joint projects with corporations are also carried out to make contributions in applied usage of our expertise and research results.
