Kyushu University Pioneering Personnel Development Fellowship
Project (Information/AI fields)

The objective of Pioneering Personnel Development Fellowship Project (Information/AI Fields)

We select doctoral students as fellows among those who are doing research on informatics and AI, and provide them with the financial assistance and the following four types of supports to help them strengthen their research abilities, find the careers, and become active doctoral degree holders in various fields:

  • Cross-field workshop with participants from various study fields
  • Career path expansion seminar by prominent researchers and business operators
  • Advice to fellows by a career support mentor who has a lot of experience at companies and universities
  • Systematic support for internship at domestic companies/laboratories and foreign countries

In this project, we aim to create a new model for supporting young researchers that gives constant financial support and career support by cooperation of university academics and people from companies. The model utilizes the know-how of cross-disciplinary education and collaborated education with businesses that Kyushu University has been cultivating, and provides the student with opportunities to come into contact with technology utilization trends in different fields from their own and various industries.
