2011 – 2013
Our research project, “Interrelations and Dialogue among the Communities of Monotheistic Religions in the Multicultural Age,” had been selected for the “Strategic Young Researcher Overseas Visits Program for Accelerating Brain Circulation,”funded by the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science.
This research project is being carried out from AY2011 to 2013, in which we send our young researchers to overseas research institutes in four countries, namely, the U.S., the U.K., Israel, and Malaysia, with a view to promoting international joint research efforts. By making the most of the research results we have gathered since the inception of CISMOR and by leveraging our unique capabilities, we will join efforts with overseas research institutes to encourage interactions and dialogue among the communities of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam and to shape a model of multiculturalism, thereby building further research insights.
This program is designed to produce high-caliber researchers capable of playing a central role in international joint research networks, thus contributing to Japan’s academic excellence. This program offers support to universities and research institutes in sending young researchers involved in world-class international joint research activities to overseas institutes in accordance with their respective international research strategies, thereby providing promising researchers with opportunities to pursue ambitious research goals.
'Basic and Applied Research on the Monotheistic Religions and Their Worlds' had been selected as one of the research themes in the 'Program to Support Formation of Strategic Research Bases in Private Universities'
The "Program to Support Formation of Strategic Research Bases in Private Universities" assists the formation of research bases by private universities to conduct leading-edge research in the world based on the management strategies of each university. It provides both focused and comprehensive aid for research projects.
2003 – 2007
'Interdisciplinary Study on Monotheistic Religions: Focusing on the Co-existence of Civilizations and the Security'had been selected as one of the research themes in the '21st Century COE(Centers of Excellence)Program'
