Joint Research Projects by Junior Researchers (pilot projects)

In October 2008, Minpaku launched an experimental “Joint Research Projects by Junior Researchers” program in which young researchers would pursue joint research projects, separate from existing joint research projects. Three projects were selected to launch the new program. In 2010, this program became an official and ongoing part of Minpaku’s research effort and proposals for the program began to be solicited in the same way as for other joint research projects.
