1. Overview

AJ-CORE (Africa-Japan Collaborative Research) is a new multilateral research framework connecting three (or more) countries: Japan, South Africa, and at least one African country. Japanese teams will be supported by JST, and South African teams by the National Research Foundation (NRF).

Researchers from other African countries will cooperate on an equal-partnership basis with those from Japan and South Africa, together contributing to issues of local and global significance. Alongside natural scientists the consortium encourages participation by a variety of stakeholders including social scientists, enterprises, NGOs and citizens, with an aim to make research outcomes relevant for wider society.
