Outreach

Educational Partnerships

RIKEN has always cooperated with universities on matters of research while also working to build closer ties by accepting their research students. In 1989, RIKEN took this another step by establishing Japan's first Joint Graduate School Program jointly with Saitama University.

At present, RIKEN is actively engaged in Joint Graduate School Programs with the thirty eight universities shown in the table below.
