International Joint Research Program

Program Outline

The Japan Society for the Promotion of Science (JSPS) carries out international joint research programs for the purpose of advancing collaborative research between excellent researchers in Japanese universities and institutes and their overseas colleagues, while providing opportunities for young researchers to hone their skills. These programs are carried out in cooperation with overseas science-promotion organizations so as to respond to the global development of scientific research activities.


Program

JSPS-NSF International Collaborations in Chemistry (ICC)
This ICC Program is carried out in cooperation with the National Science Foundation (NSF) in the US. Through international joint research projects between Japan and the US, the program seeks to break new ground in yet-uncultivated domains of chemistry by achieving new levels and dimensions of research synergy.


JSPS-NSF Partnerships for International Research and Education (PIRE)
This PIRE Program is carried out in cooperation with the National Science Foundation (NSF) in the US. The program implements joint research projects on issues difficult to solve by one country alone. In carrying out the joint projects, a synergistic effect is sought by such means as sharing resources and research facilities.


G8 Research Councils Initiative for Multilateral Research Funding
Based on an agreement between G8 Research Councils, namely JSPS, the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC), the French National Research Agency (ANR), the German Research Foundation (DFG), the Russian Foundation for Basic Research (RFBR), the Research Councils UK (RCUK) and the National Science Foundation (NSF), this Initiative aims to support excellent multinational research teams involving researchers from a minimum of three countries among Japan, Canada, France, Germany, Russia, the UK and the USA to address well-known global challenges for which solutions can only be achieved by global and often interdisciplinary scientific approaches.
