Overview

The NINS Joint Research Program was developed from FY 2016 as a program to support research in the new integrated areas of different fields by researchers inside and outside NINS jointly conducted with researchers who belong to NINS as a precursor and is being implemented from FY 2017.​ ​

NINS consists of the five (5) research institutes of the National Astronomical Observatory of Japan (NAOJ), National Institute for Fusion Science (NIFS), National Institute for Basic Biology (NIBB), National Institute for Physiological Sciences (NIPS), and Institute for Molecular Science (IMS) and the Astrobiology Center (ABC), Center for Novel Science Initiatives (CNSI), Exploratory Research Center on Life and Living System (ExCELLS), and International Research Collaboration Center (IRCC) and has developed broad-ranging joint utilization and joint research with each group of researchers who belong to research areas including astronomy, fusion science, basic biology, physiological sciences, molecular science.

This program is looking forward to research proposals of non-conventional ideas by the integration of different fields from researchers of different research fields inside and outside NINS and to develop new research fields regardless of the divisions of the research institutes beyond previous research. For this reason, we will provide a preliminary consultation for those in very different fields and those who have ideas but do not know who with in the research institute of their choice to partner-up.
