The Ensemble Project for Early Career Researchers in Tohoku University will fund joint research groups consisting of researchers from several departments in order to promote collaboration among early career researchers in Tohoku University. The grants are intended to support budding academic research projects that are created through interdepartmental collaboration based on free individual ideas. Proposals are invited to encourage new research start-ups or attempts at new developments that broaden the scope of existing research. Early career researchers are welcome to apply, but those who participate in the research group as co-investigators are not required to have any status, as long as they meet the requirements for affiliation described in the guidelines. We welcome applications based on new ideas and perspectives (not only the content of research, but also the use of facilities in other departments to improve research efficiency).
