Daiwa Adrian Prize 2001 winners with the Director General and Trustees of the Foundation at the British Embassy in Tokyo, December 2001

Daiwa Adrian Prizes are triennial awards that recognise significant scientific collaboration between British and Japanese research teams.

Professor Richard Adrian FRS, the 2nd Baron Adrian (1927-95) was a distinguished scientist and university administrator. He followed in the footsteps of his father the Nobel Laureate Edgar Adrian, the 1st Baron Adrian in the study of physiology and became Professor of Cell Physiology at Cambridge University in 1978. Lord Adrian had a long association with Cambridge, and was Master of Pembroke College (1981-92) and Vice Chancellor (1985-87), a position his father had held nearly thirty years before. Lord Adrian also served for many years as a Trustee of the British Museum and as a Member of the British Library Board.

They are were established in 1992 and subsequently renamed to commemorate the late Lord Adrian, a founding Trustee of the Foundation. 

All submissions will be judged on scientific quality and past performance but take into account future potential and the likely long-term contribution to UK-Japan scientific relations. Collaborative projects that are at a relatively early stage of development will also be considered. 

Each application undergoes a thorough assessment procedure by the Foundation, the British Council and the Royal Society. 


  • Applications must be made jointly by the British and Japanese Team Leaders and must be from recognised institutions from the UK and Japan. (Team Leaders and Team Members can be of any nationality but they must be affiliated to a relevant institution.)

  • All submissions must be in the open research domain.
  • Multi-disciplinary projects that include an element of education or the social sciences are eligible for consideration.
