This program works to foster excellent young Japanese researchers who will form the nucleus of networks that are formed by Japanese research groups with a high degree of potential, that draw upon the international circulation of good brains, and that carry out international joint research with top-ranked overseas research institutions.
What is funded
It does this by supporting Japanese universities and research institutions with programs to dispatch for long stays (1 year minimum) young Japanese researchers to counterpart countries and to invite researchers from those countries to Japan.
Selected projects will be funded for 1-3 years up to 40 million JPY.
Japanese research institutions and/or group leaders.
