University Course Research Grant

Purpose of subsidy

Cosmetology is a typical example of the fusion of interdisciplinary science across a variety of disciplines. Since cosmetics are consumer goods, the research results are characterized by their direct connection to peoples’ daily lives.
This Grant Program provides grants to educational and research organizations in Japan that challenge important themes that many consumers expect in the field of cosmetology, i.e., strong social demand for problem solving, and work on developing advanced human resources to lead the next generation.
