Bilateral Collaborations (Joint Research/Seminar)

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

JSPS has two types of joint research projects/seminars between Japan and counterpart countries:

  1. joint research projects/seminars with counterpart organizations (A “Bilateral Joint Projects/Seminars with JSPS’s Counterpart Institutions”)
  2. joint research projects/seminars with researchers around the world who reside in a country that has diplomatic relations with Japan (B “Open Partnership Joint Research Projects/Seminars”)

JSPS’s counterpart institution in Egypt is the Ministry of Scientific Research, and its affiliated agency the Science and Technology Development Fund implements these programmes.
The natural sciences are included under the joint research project, and the fields of the humanities, social sciences and natural sciences are included under the joint seminar project.
