[6/14-8/6] g-RIPS-Sendai 2021


Applications are now open for this year's g-RIPS-Sendai (Graduate-level Research in Industrial Projects for Students). The eight-week programme - which runs from June to August - offers graduate students in mathematics and related disciplines the opportunity to work on industry-partnered research problems in Sendai.

The industrial partners for g-RIPS-Sendai 2021 are Mitsubishi Electric Corporation, NEC Corporation, F-MIRAI and TOYOTA Motor Corporation.

Students from Japan and the U.S. will work on cross-cultural teams on research problems designed by the industrial partners, and present the results of their work in a final report. The projects will offer a stimulating challenge, and involve both analytic and computational skills.
