Invited overseas researchers in the environmental field, supported by a grant-in-aid "Greater Nagoya Project," reported their research results
31 Aug 2011
On August 3, a presentation, co-hosted by the Chubu Science and Technology Center, was held for the Greater Nagoya supported project, in which invited overseas researchers reported on their studies.
The Chubu Science and Technology Center subsidizes collaborative research between universities and institutes in the Chubu area and overseas researchers in the environmental field. This research grant was financed by a donation from the "Japan Association for the 2005 World Exposition", with the aim of inheriting and expanding the basic philosophy of the Exposition, "Ai-Chikyuhaku", which means "Love the Earth". Since 2007, based on applications by universities and research institutes in the Chubu Area, research grants have been awarded to fund joint research with overseas researchers in the environmental area.
In the presentation, Jerome Jolibois, a researcher from the University of Poitiers in France, (accepted by Professor Mizuno, Department of the Environment and Biotechnology, TUT ) and Associate Professor Asri Gani from the Syiah Kuala University in Indonesia (accepted by Professor Daimon, Department of the Environment and Biotechnology, TUT), who were adopted for the 2009 project, reported on their one-year research studies. More than 50 people including university staff and people from outside the university attended the meeting. An active question and answer session was held after the presentation.
