Funding Program for Next Generation World-Leading Researchers

Using the Japanese government’s FY2009 supplemental budget, the Leading-edge Research Promotion Fund was established within the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science (JSPS). JSPS uses it to finance the Funding Program for Next Generation World-Leading Researchers(NEXT Program) aimed at supporting the researchers who possess the potential to be world leaders in their respective fields. Based on guidelines prescribed by the Council for Science and Technology Policy (CSTP) and the Minister of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology, JSPS has through FY 2010 recruited and screened applications while continuing to disburse grants and manage the progress of R&D carried out by researchers.
