New-Generation Researchers’ Units for the “Creative Asia-Japan Research from Ritsumeikan University"
In FY2022, the Asia-Japan Research Institute established various research units to promote original “Asia-Japan Research.” Through each research unit, organized mainly by next-generation researchers, our aim is to disseminate creative Asia-Japan researchers unique to Ritsumeikan University. In addition, these units will play a role in the “Gateway to Asia” by building networks for collaboration among international researchers worldwide. A series of international workshops will be organized through each unit, so those of you who are interested are invited to keep an eye on the EVENTS section of our website.
