Supporting and Training Technologists

Nagase Science and Technology Foundation

To help advance science and technology in Japan, we established the Nagase Science and Technology Foundation in 1989 and made it a public interest foundation in 2011. The foundation strives to advance science and technology by supporting research and development in the fields of organic chemistry and biochemistry with the aim of contributing to socioeconomic progress.
A total of 25 research grant winners were selected from 283 applicants in the fields of organic chemistry and biochemistry, and each received a grant of 3 million yen (of this amount, an additional 500,000 yen was provided for the response to COVID-19) and the NAGASE Research Promotion Award.
