Comprehensive International collaboration

Display Page for Printing Updated: Updated June 13, 2018

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.​ ​

自然科学研究機構とプリンストン大学(アメリカ)は、2010年より学術交流協定を締結しています。
この協定に基づき、共同研究や教育活動支援、会議・シンポジウム等への相互参加などさまざまな交流を行っています。また、国際共同事業を促進する枠組みを強化するため、2015年度に研究力強化推進本部北米拠点をプリンストン大学内に設置し、海外駐在型URAを配置しました。

欧州分子生物学研究所(EMBL)は、ハイデルベルグ(ドイツ)に本部を置き、EU諸国を中心とする19ヶ国の出資により運営されている国際的研究機関です。ドイツ、イギリス、イタリア等、欧州5ヶ所に研究所を有し、世界で最も優れた分子生物学者が集う研究拠点のひとつです。本機構とEMBLは、2005年7月に学術交流協定を締結しました。(2019年度に再延長)
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.​ ​
Furthermore, we have mutually dispatched researchers, mainly postdoctoral, for joint research or exploration for opportunity of joint research. We are promoting active interaction among young researchers by offering subsidies called “Shimura Award” for those coming to Japan, or the “Mattaj Award” for those dispatched from Japan. 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.
