Call for Research Proposals for All Academic Staff in FY2018

Since FY2010, the IAMU has launched a research project system (supported by The Nippon Foundation) to bring about further progress in capacity building among the IAMU member universities. This research project system will be renewed from FY2018 by launching a new research project system. Therefore, the IAMU Research Project system will be divided into two frameworks, one for All Academic Staff and the other for Young Academic Staff

The International Association of Maritime Universities is pleased to announce the call for research proposals for All Academic Staff in FY2018. All academic staff of IAMU member universities are invited to propose research projects for All Academic Staff of which the research period is from May 2018 to May 2019.
