The 2017 call for the Australia Japan Emerging Research Leaders Program opened on May 15.
Please note the 2017 program is open to AJERLEP alumni only and has a different format from previous rounds.
Participants will be funded to attend a one-day AJERLEP debrief and discussion with the major Australian and Japanese stakeholders (noting that 2017 is the final year of the current funding round). They will then participate in an alumni-run two-day interdisciplinary symposium. Both events will take place in Fukuoka, December 4-6 2017. Participants will also be provided with a lump sum grant to enable them to make follow up visits to their Japanese research collaborators prior to, or following, the events.
AJERLEP alumni have been contacted directly concerning the program. Should you have any queries, please contact Dr Carolyn O’Brien
