The British Council in Japan supports international joint research contributing to climate change, a global issue, and are supporting new trilateral research collaborations between universities in Japan, the United Kingdom, and ASEAN countries, aimed at addressing climate change.
This new research funding draws together the strengths of Japanese and UK universities, alongside their ASEAN partners, to promote energy transition. The award is supporting four projects 50,000 GBP each.
They cover the topics of green transport, decarbonisation, bioenergy, and water resources risk management, with a common focus on mentoring early-career researchers to become the next generation of climate research leaders.
Please find below more information on the four research projects.
