WHAT IS LEAVE A NEST GRANT ?

Leave a Nest Grant is for young researchers with passion and vision.

In Leave a Nest, since 2001, we have provided various opportunities for young researchers in Japan and the world so that more researchers will be able to pursue their goal to advance science and technology for global happiness. Leave a Nest Grant is one of our outreach activities for young researchers.

For years in Japan, young researchers were having difficulties in obtaining a grant to support the research activity that they really would like to pursue. Leave a Nest being a company comprised of researchers, this was one of the problems we strongly felt that we would like to solve. Since 2008, we have started Leave a Nest Grant in Japan and supported around 200 young researchers through our Grant. Now we would like to expand our activity to the world to support the research activity of young researchers around the world.

Our corporate name, Leave a Nest, stands for taking a first step for future.

We hope many young researchers will use this opportunity and for taking their own first step to further pursue and excel in their career.
