We support large-scale international research collaboration on an equal-partnership basis, with partner countries and regions and in research fields designated through intergovernmental agreement.
SATREPS is an international research program conducted in collaboration with JICA, which provides official development assistance (ODA).
Based on the needs of developing countries, this program aims to address global issues and to produce research outcomes of practical benefit to both local and global societies.
In collaboration with Southeast Asian countries, this program supports multilateral, international joint research conducted by 3 or more countries which contributes to the resolution of shared challenges.
This international cooperative project is supported by the European Union (EU) 7th Framework Programme (FP7) and aims to promote effective science and technology cooperation between European countries and Japan. In collaboration with 14 organisations from 11 countries, JST is supporting research cooperation in the fields of "Disaster Resilience" and "Energy".
This international forum brings together 13 national governments and funding agencies, as well as 3 international scientific organisations, in order to provide funding to global environmental change research. JST is supporting international joint research in the targeted field of "Freshwater Security".
This initiative aims to create an environment facilitating cooperation with overseas researchers, thereby raising international awareness of and contributing to Japan’s strategic objectives. Research projects supported in our strategic basic research programs can be further accelerated and their outcomes more widely disseminated by leveraging the potential of overseas researchers and their research institutions.

In addition to supporting joint research with other countries, JST also engages in various international exchange activities including workshops and programs for the exchange of young researchers.
Taking advantage of the presence of many global funding agencies’ presidents in Japan to attend the annual Science and Technology in Society (STS) forum, this meeting aims to promote cooperation and knowledge-sharing through candid discussion regarding the challenges facing our institutions.
Established on the initiative of Subra Suresh, former-Director of the US National Science Foundation, the Global Research Council comprises the world’s major funding agencies and research institutions, and JST has been a member since its inception. Member institutions discuss common challenges they face and summarise a joint statement at an annual summit, which brings together the member institutions’ presidents.
With close collaboration among industrial, academic and governmental institutions, this program offers opportunities for excellent young scientists from the rest of Asia to visit Japan.
Promoting science and technology cooperation at an early stage in fields that will become prominent in the future, fostering exchange especially among young researchers and creating networks are all extremely important activities for the development of science and technology in Japan. For this reason, JST is collecting information related to overseas science and technology through the Infrastructure Development for Promoting International S&T Cooperation program.
JST supports international meetings and other activities to enable discussion about the future of science and technology, with the participation of a wide range of leading stakeholders from industry, academia and government.
To further promote international exchange, JST operates accommodation ("Ninomiya House" and "Takezono House") in Tsukuba, available for use by visiting researchers.
Established in April 2006, Science Portal China gathers S&T information and from China and compiles a database of Chinese scientific literature in order to promote mutual understanding and to foster research and networking.
