The longstanding relationship between North Carolina State University and Nagoya University serves as a strategic partnership to leverage complementary strengths and inter-disciplinary scholarship in the advancement of research collaboration and academic exchanges. These awards are designed to provide pump-priming and early contact partner outreach with the expectation that they will lead to more substantive engagement.
Funds will support international travel and related activities leading to high-quality research collaboration. The intention is that these collaborations will result in high quality outputs, such as workshops/seminars, research collaboration, exchanges of researchers and graduate students, publication of joint papers from collaborative research, or follow-on joint research bids.
