Japan Society for the Promotion of Science

JSPS promotes international scientific exchanges between Japan and counterpart countries in accordance with agreements or memoranda of understanding concluded with academies, research councils and other science-promotion organizations in those countries. Programs with such counterpart agencies mainly take the form of joint research projects, joint seminars and researcher exchanges.

Proposals for bilateral programs are openly recruited; and, per agreement with the counterpart agency, are jointly selected and supported.

In addition to joint research projects/seminars with counterpart agencies, JSPS has another scheme for joint research projects/seminars named “Open Partnership Joint Research Projects/Seminars” from FY2013 that provides Japanese researchers an opportunity to do a joint research project or a seminar with researchers around the world who reside in a country that has diplomatic relations with Japan, plus Taiwan and Palestine.
