Celebrating 30 years of research grants
2017 marks 30 years of the Canon Foundation’s commitment to granting research fellowships. During this time, the Foundation has assessed, awarded and monitored nearly 380 Canon Fellows in 27 countries totaling over 8 million Euros in awards.
Founded in 1987, the Foundation strives to build mutual understanding between the people of Europe and Japan. Our support of scientists and scholars working on leading-edge research has been ongoing ever since.
