EBARA Award 2020

The EBARA Prize 2020 has closed for submissions.

Ebara Corporation develops technologies and products that control the "flow" of gases, liquids, and electricity, such as pumps, blowers, semiconductor device manufacturing equipment, and power generation facilities.
And by controlling the flow, we are a company that continues to take on the challenge of solving social issues around the world and creating a bright future.
Through the Science Castle Research Grant, we would like to create a new future by using "flow" together with junior and senior high school students. We look forward to receiving applications for a wide variety of ideas! EBARA and Naraba, we can do it! The application period closed on Friday, June 19 due to the large number of applications.
