Our collaborative partners are academic and research institutes located mostly in Japan. As a British Institute with its headquarters in Norwich, UK, the strength of our projects and the reach of their impact depends largely on how many vibrant links we can forge and foster with centres of excellence in Japan, primarily, but also in the UK and the rest of the world. Over the years, our academics have continued to cultivate these links and as a result we have a number of formal collaborative research partners with whom we have carried out research projects and exchange programs.
