Current Academic Visitors

At any one time there are between two and five visiting research fellows working in the Nissan Institute. Most of them are scholars taking sabbatical leave from their universities either in Japan or North America. While they do not take part in any of the formal teaching programmes they attend the research seminars and contribute to those discussions. They are available for consultation by members of the graduate community.

  • Mr Stephen McEnally, former Chief Executive, The Great Britain Sasakawa Foundation from 1st July 2016 for 3 years
