The days I spent as a Canon Foundation Research Fellow in France was not only a valuable experience but also an eye-opener to me. Since it is much easier in Europe to interact with many famous researchers because of geographical closeness, that made me become to know what was required to be a leading researcher from their points of view, ideas and opinions. At the same time, I could expedite our collaborative work with my host professor and his co-workers in both economic literature and computer sciences. I strongly believe that this research fellowship program provides with a great opportunity to both enrich your academic and daily activities and actively work in the international scene in the future.
