IUJ has been ranked ninth in terms of the number of the successful Grants-in-Aid for Scientific Research projects in the field of economic theory during the past five years.
Grants-in-Aid for Scientific Research are competitive funds that are intended to significantly develop all scientific research from basic to applied research in all fields, ranging from the humanities and the social sciences to the natural sciences. The grants provide financial support for creative and pioneering research projects that will become the foundation of social development. The research projects are selected using a peer-review screening process. All Japanese universities have encouraged their faculty members to apply to the research grants, since research achievement is one of the important factors to determine the university’s reputation. The result of the ranking proves that GSIR faculty members have been active in conducting academic research in this field.
