Japanese Cultural Program

The IRTG is working closely with Prof. Fabian Schäfer, head of the Japanese Studies Institute, FAU, and his team. They developed a condensed preparation course custom-made for the IRTG doctoral researchers who are going to Japan for a longer research stay. By that, we make sure that the doctoral researchers are prepared for living and working in a new country.
The team is providing language support as well as culture and working environment related guidelines, and the training aims to deepen the recognition of how differences in values can result in differences in patterns of behavior, working style, or the way of conducting international research projects. This training will help prevent culture shock and ease the transition process as well as develop intercultural communication skills.
