Reward Overview

  Regarding research or industry-academia collaboration, the objective of the reward is to further stimulate research activities and to promote industry-academia collaboration, with Kyushu University as a hub of global research and education, by rewarding faculty and others who make particularly laudable contributions to Kyushu University research and the school’s financial standing, as well as who serve as a model for other members of the school.
