Challenging Research Award

Overview

To encourage young faculty members at Tokyo Tech to engage in challenging research, Tokyo Tech has established the Challenging Research Award for creative, up-and-coming researchers who boldly pursue the promotion of the most advanced research in the world, pioneering of new fields of study, innovative development of new research, and important issues that are difficult to solve. We commend the recipients of this award and provide them with financial support for their research. Many of the researchers who won this award have also gone on to win the Commendation for Science and Technology by the Minister of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology.In 2019, 10 researchers were awarded and 3 of them won the Suematsu Challenging Research Award.

Throughout the selection, the Office of Research and Innovation make sure the present research trends by the early career researchers and keep setting many opportunities to support them.

FY2020 Requirements for Recommendation 【Internal】

*Only in Japanese.
*This award is only available to recommended individuals.

FY2019 Award Winners

The 18th Tokyo Tech Challenging Research Awards went to ten researchers each of whom will receive a research grant.
