Based on agreements with overseas partner research organizations, the Japan Society for Promotion of Science (JSPS) carries out academic workshops and seminars to promote bilateral research collaboration in all research fields including the humanities and social sciences, while fostering young researchers and supporting scientific research based on the researchers’ own free ideas.
By sharing knowledge and ideas in these meetings, the excellent young researchers who attend them acquire pointers as to the direction of their future careers. At the same time, the meetings accord an opportunity for the participants to form colleagual networks among their affiliated institutions, through which joint research that pioneers new domains can be advanced.
