Organization's Comprehensive Scientific Agreement

Organization of Comprehensive International Collaboration

NINS, as an interdisciplinary research base in natural science, has been trying to create an international research base comprised of the finest researchers on a global scale, deepening the domestic as well as international collaboration with Europe, the United States, and various countries of East Asia.
As part of the formation of a cross-disciplinary hub in an international framework, comprehensive agreements for international joint research, etc. have been concluded between NINS and international research institutes, etc.​ ​

National Institutes of Natural Sciences and Princeton University (USA) have signed an academic exchange agreement since 2010.
Based on this agreement, we are engaged in various exchanges such as joint research, support for educational activities, and mutual participation in conferences and symposiums. In addition, in order to strengthen the framework for promoting international consortiums, from 2015 to 2022, Research Enhancement Promotion Headquarters at Princeton University and placed an overseas URA.

International Collaboration with the European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL)


The European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL), the present in Heidelberg (Germany) Department Place the, is an international research institutions that are run by investment of 19 countries around the EU countries. With five research institutes in Europe such as Germany, the United Kingdom, and Italy, it is one of the research bases where the best molecular biologists in the world gather. The Organization and EMBL signed an academic exchange agreement in July 2005. (Re-extended in 2019)
Based on this agreement, NINS and EMBL have engaged in (1) academic exchange, (2) personnel exchange and (3) technological exchange. NIBB, which has common research fields with EMBL, is playing a central role in promoting joint researches.​ ​
As part of the academic exchange, we organize joint symposiums, achieving positive results in exchanging the latest academic information between researchers and building a network of researchers.​ ​
Also, NINS carries out invitational seminars and forests up opportunities for researchers from both organizations to engage in mutual visits between research institutes and direct interaction with researchers of the host institute.
