Bilateral Programs

Outline

Joint Research Projects/Seminars

1. Program Outline

The Japan Society for the Promotion of Science (JSPS) carries out bilateral cooperative programs between Japan and counterpart countries based on agreements concluded with academies, research councils and other science-promotion organizations in those countries.
The aim of these programs is to form sustained networks evolved from individual scientist exchanges including young scientists. JSPS provides financial support to Japanese scientists implementing such bilateral joint research projects and seminars between research teams from Japan and counterpart countries.
The Bilateral Joint Research Projects/Seminars are comprised of two components: (A) Bilateral Joint Research Projects/Seminars with JSPS's Counterpart Institutions and (B) Open Partnership Joint Research Projects/Seminars. Open Partnership Joint Research Projects/Seminars provide Japanese researchers an opportunity to conduct research/seminar with researchers around the world who reside in a country that has diplomatic relations with Japan. (JSPS also treats researchers who reside in Taiwan and Palestine in this manner.)
