Imperial-Tokyo Tech Global Fellows Programme 2019 in London - Climate Action - Call for Participation!
In cooperation with Imperial College London (“Imperial”), Tokyo Tech invites student applications for Imperial-Tokyo Tech Global Fellows Programme 2019*, a weeklong, training camp-style professional program that will bring together Imperial and Tokyo Tech doctoral students from various disciplines for collaboration around the theme of Climate Action.
Climate Action is identified as one of the UN’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals. Hosted by Imperial, participants will gather in London to develop the professional, research and collaborative skills necessary to find workable solutions to climate change and its impacts. Through team discussions and interaction with researchers from different disciplines, development of collaborative research, participation in site visits, and poster presentations, Global Fellows will enhance their leadership and communication skills, further develop their interdisciplinary and intercultural awareness, and build professional networks.
Following the programme, Tokyo Tech participants who have made arrangements with an Imperial faculty member may remain in London at their own expense for an additional three-week research placement with a lab or group at the university.
