National Institutes of Natural Sciences, International Collaboration Research Center (IRCC)

Purpose and background

 For the progress of international collaborative research in the future, such as promoting efforts beyond the boundaries of fields and institutions by international exchange with overseas universities/organizations, new institutional initiatives are now required.
  In view of this background, we established a center directly under the president to promote and support efforts of international collaboration, which is expected to further develop beyond the boundaries of fields and institutions.
  These efforts are consistent with the statement in the MEXT "the future of the Collaborative Research Organization" (2017 February 14, the Council for Science and Technology, Academic Subcommittee research environment foundation Group, MEXT), saying " Inter-University Research Institute Corporation , as a COE in each field of our country, in order to promote internationalization in each research field and create a new field based on fusion of different fields, is required to consider the establishment of a new research unit/organization with reviewing trends of international research."
