Final Report Presentation of the 2019 JIRCAS Visiting Research Fellowship Program was held on March 10, 2021. Five foreign researchers from research organizations in developing regions, who have been invited to JIRCAS since October 2019, presented their research results for a year and a half. The visiting research fellows include Dr. Gas Xiang (China), Ms Du Zhumei (China), Dr. Giriraj Kumawat (India), Dr. Luciano Nobuhiro Aoyagi (Brazil) and Dr. Sirilak Baramee (Thailand). After the presentation of research results, President Iwanaga congratulated the graduating fellows and presented them with a certificate of completion.
The five research fellows conducted research on various topics under the supervision of JIRCAS researchers, giving them an opportunity to lead a fulfilling research life in the JIRCAS research environment and the living environment of Tsukuba City.
The fellows will return to their home countries by the end of March this year and resume their research careers at the institute or university to which they belong. We sincerely hope that this fellowship program will further deepen the partnership between JIRCAS and respective research institutes of the visiting research fellows.
