General Description

The program consists mainly of the followings:

(1) Research fund for international research projects (selected through open call for proposals)

  • In principle, a financial support of about JPY 5 million - JPY 10 million is granted on Japanese side per project per year for three years. (The amount and period of support is determined flexibly through coordination with a counterpart country.)
  • This research fund can be used for expenses relating to (a) research meetings by project researchers; (b) joint research activities; (c) dispatch and invitation of researchers; etc.

(2) Workshops to promote international research collaboration (sponsored by JST)

  • These workshops consist mainly of lectures by researchers from Japan and counterpart countries.
  • The principal objective is to facilitate exchange activities among participating researchers.


  • A financial support is provided as necessary for holding training courses, etc.

The program is implemented by organically combining the above-mentioned assistance according to the needs of counterpart countries and cooperative fields. The basis of the program is that JST assists researchers on Japanese side and funding agencies in counterpart countries assist researchers in their countries.
