Hector Gonzalez-Jimenez (Lecturer in Marketing at TYMS) has won a call aimed at visiting scholars at Rikkyo University in Tokyo, Japan. The visiting scholar programme covers flights and subsistence for two weeks in Tokyo. Hector will be heading to Tokyo during February/March 2019 to provide guest lectures at Rikkyo University and to work on his Consumer Acceptance of Social Robots Project. This research visit will further build on upcoming exploratory work on social robots in Tokyo (July 2018), which is linked to a recent grant provided by the Great Britain Sasakawa Foundation.
