Program Overview: Graduate-Level Research in Industrial Projects for Students (G-RIPS) in Japan will offer graduate students in mathematics and related disciplines the opportunity to work on industry-sponsored research problems in Sendai, Japan. Students from the U.S. and Japan will work on cross-cultural teams on research problems designed by industrial sponsors. The projects will be of serious interest to the sponsor and will offer a stimulating challenge to students; most will involve both analytic and computational work. At the end of the program, the teams will present the results of their work and prepare a final report. IPAM will encourage the U.S. students to publish and/or present their research at conferences in the year following the program. English is the only language required for participation. Descriptions of G-RIPS Sendai in 2021, 2019, and 2018 can be found at the following links: G-RIPS 2021; G-RIPS 2019; G-RIPS 2018.
Round-trip travel to Sendai and accommodations in Sendai are included. Students will also receive a meal allowance and a stipend, and conference support to present their research. (These terms apply to U.S. participants recruited by IPAM.)

This program is partially supported by an IRES grant from NSF’s Office of International Science and Engineering.
Covid-19: The safety of all program participants is of highest importance to IPAM. We are carefully monitoring the developments of the pandemic. At this point we expect that all participants will travel to Sendai and that the program will be completely in-person. However, this may change depending on the trajectory of the pandemic. If the situation demands it, we will adapt our programming to ensure optimum safety of our participants.
