1. Purposes

The J-RAPID(*) program is dedicated to support collaboration activities between Japanese and foreign researchers having a severe urgency on natural or anthropogenic disasters and similar unanticipated events.

J-RAPID aims to play an initial response role by promptly supporting activities above mentioned before ordinary projects are implemented by the national government, academic societies, or others.

J-RAPID, supports international collaborative projects in collaboration with funding agencies and research institutes in foreign countries.

(*) Triggered by Dear Colleague Letter for New Zealand and Japan dated March 29, 2011 issued by National Science Foundation (NSF) of the United States, JST launched original "J-RAPID" in April 2011.

2. Characteristics of J-RAPID

  • JST calls for proposals when JST identifies needs on immediate support of international collaborative research or survey activities on unanticipated events occurred in Japan or other countries, considering degree of urgencies and social/economic impacts of the events and/or at the request of the national government or academia.
  • JST assists researchers in Japan and funding agencies or research institutes in counterpart countries assist researchers in their countries.
  • In order to fund promptly, as a general rule, proposals are reviewed on a first-come-first-served basis.

3. Eligibility

A Japanese researcher must belong to university, research institute, or private company within Japan. In addition, a Japanese researcher must have established a basic agreement with an investigator in counterpart county to conduct a collaborative research or investigation. The collaborating foreign investigator must have appropriate support from his/her funding agency.

4. Duration and Size of Support

The funding amount is several million yen for 6 - 12 months. It may vary according to discussion with counter-part countries.
