Statistical Data on International Researchers

Japanese Web Page

In academic year 2016, roughly 600 Gifu University faculty and staff members traveled overseas for research, information gathering, and participation in academic conferences. Most of them used research funds provided by central and local governments as well as private firms. They exchanged information with not only partner universities but many other universities, and continue to actively engage in joint research. In addition, about 50 foreign researchers conducted joint research with Gifu University faculty while staying at Gifu University for longer than a month, and roughly 140 researchers made short-term visits to Gifu University to exchange research data.

The Gifu University Head Office for Glocalization(GHOGL) dispatches several researchers every year to partner universities using funds donated by international exchange support organizations. It also invites researchers from partner universities.
