“The group brought fantastic skills, knowledge, [and the] desire to interact on effective projects.”- GSAS Scholar

After each GSAS Session, the Global Research Team with the most promising Global Research Project is awarded a Team Research Fellowship to implement their project at a GSAS host institution.

Members of the winning team are hired by a GSAS host institution for a year or more, depending on the requirements of their projects. Fellowships are team-based.

The winning team from the Taiwan Solar Cell Session (below) has members from Japan, South Africa,Taiwan, the Philippines and the United States. Their Winning Research Project – “A More Efficient Architecture for the Sensitization of TiO2 for dye-sensitized Solar Cells” - was selected for implementation at the Industrial Technology Research Institute (ITRI) Taiwan.

Scholars from the Sydney Solar Cell Session (shown below with their mentors)  implemented their research at Northwestern University. This team includes members from Australia, Taiwan, and the United States.

How will your GSAS experience benefit your future research?:
Our team came out with a scientific project in the end. Although we did not win the project, the research idea was approved by the most people in CEA and other members. This is already an encouragement. In addition, since the GIANT is an industrial-oriented institute, this helps me to think and see things in another way (I was more like a scientific person). Including the working experiences I mentioned in last question, all these would be very very helpful.

How has GSAS helped you develop a global perspective?:
"I was really glad to see the big steps made by Taiwanese scientists and researchers during a very short period of time. I am really impressed with their laboratory facilities."
