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.​ ​

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.
