The Global Liaison Office (GLO) at NII has established partnerships with more than 100 MOU partners. GLO supports international exchanges via the “MOU Grant Program” under which a NII researcher can invite a colleague from overseas for a stay, or go overseas for a research visit (up to 2 months, around 40 researchers a year supported). GLO also offers the “NII International Internship Program” in which we welcome Master’s and PhD students from MOU partners for a stay in one of our research teams (3 to 6 months, around 140 students per year).
