Announcement on behalf of Taku J Sato – Vice President of AONSA
The AONSA Young Research Fellowship Program, which was established in early 2014, is designed to support highly talented young scientists with leadership potential in the Asia-Oceania region, helping them to develop their careers and expertise in neutron science and technology. All applications were received by the submission deadline (August 31, 2020), and intensively reviewed by the Selection Committee (SC) for the AONSA Young Research Fellowship (YRF) 2021 awards.
The final selections were made by the SC in consultation with three hosting neutron Facilities and officially approved at the 25th AONSA Executive Committee Meeting on November 28, 2020, held online due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
It is AONSA’s great pleasure to announce that three highly talented young scientists have been selected as the winner of the AONSA YRF 2021, who will visit major neutron Facilities in the Asia-Oceania region for collaborative research using neutrons in 2021. The AONSA YRFs’ round-trip airfare will be supported by AONSA, and their local living expense during their Fellowship visits will be supported by their hosting Facilities.
