The Japan based PI must complete a research ethics training program conducted by the research institute with which the PI is affiliated, etc., and then declare the completion of the program to the JST call secretariat within 30 days after the deadline of the call for proposals. If it would be very difficult for the Japanese PI to undertake a program provided by his or her own affiliated institute, they should please contact JST to register for a research ethics program provided by CITI Japan and should complete the program within 30 days after the deadline of the call for proposals. Please note that unless applicants complete a research ethics program, his / her application will be deemed ineligible and rejected.
