ALCA External Evaluation Committee(EEC) Final Report

1 The Demand of External Evaluation

It is necessary as a part of this to implement an evaluation by external experts this year, five years after this Project was launched, in order to be able to finalize the results of an objective self-evaluation at the end of JST’s third mid-term plan.
The creation of “technology that contributes to the creation of a low carbon society,” ALCA’s objective, is a major part of the development of mitigation measures for “global warming,” the urgent challenge to which the international community must respond in unity. Thus, it is necessary to evaluate ALCA Program from the perspective of global trends in research and development and international cooperation aimed at the mitigation of global warming by inviting, as members of this committee, countermeasures in addition to its domestic members overseas experts who are engaged in promising research and development in the environment and energy area or are significantly positioned to actively implement global warming.
