Brazil <Cooperation with Each Country>

1) Field of Cooperation -"Biomass and Biotechnology"

In May 2005, when President Lula visited Japan, he had a talk with then Prime Minister Junichiro Koizumi and agreed to promote more collaboration between the two countries in science and technology. In response to this, CNPq, MEXT and JST negotiated a field in which to conduct SICP, which lead to the agreement on gBiomass and Biotechnologyh at the Science and Technology Joint Committee in May 2009. JST and CNPq concluded their MoU for collaboration in October 2009.
