Programmes to Invite Japanese Researchers to Overseas Research Group

Overseas Challenge Program for Young Researchers

This program gives doctoral students an opportunity to go overseas to engage in joint research in a challenging new research environment, with researchers in other countries over a period of three months to one year. In this way, the program contributes to the fostering of early career researchers who possess abundant international experience and can be expected to play leading roles in the wider scientific arena.

Research Fellowships for Young Scientists

In view of the growing need to foster early career researchers who will play an important role in future scientific research activities, JSPS provides a special programme under which fellowships are granted to 1) Japanese postdoctoral researchers at their early stages of career who conduct research activities at Japanese universities or research institutions on a non-employment basis and to 2) graduate students who conduct research as part of Japanese university doctoral programmes. JSPS strongly recommends the successful researchers to conduct their research abroad because it would be extremely helpful to train researchers with overseas experience for the advancement of world class research taking place in Japan.

Programme for Advancing Strategic International Networks to Accelerate the Circulation of Talented Researchers

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. It does this by supporting Japanese universities and research institutions with programs to dispatch for long stays young Japanese researchers to counterpart countries and to invite researchers from those countries to Japan.

We are not going to make a call for FY2018 and in the further future.
