Collaboration with Japan: Doctoral Education
A majority of PhD-students that spend time at KI are doing so without formal agreements, as is the case for most students from Japan.
In most cases, the PhD-students are visiting KI within existing research collaborations where the Principal Investigators collaborate. For information regarding PhD-agreements at departmental level, please contact the relevant department. The only collaborative agreement at central level that KI has with a Japanse university is a PhD short term exchange agreement with RIKEN.
JSPS has different fellowship programmes for foreign PhD-students, post docs and scholars/researchers.
There are also some Swedish funded programmes, but they are mainly for post docs and researchers.
For information about the collaborative PhD-course with RIKEN, please contact the international coordinator for Japan:
