Kyoto University Research Administration Office (KURA)

Kyoto University Research Administration Office (KURA) was officially launched in April 2012 as an organization to provide consistent research support for project planning, obtaining research funds, project execution and public relations. KURA is intended to ease the non-research burden (such as administrative work) imposed on researchers by providing a well-organized research support network. To achieve that aim, KURA networks and collaborates with existing research support offices at Kyoto University.
