Japan: JIRCAS Visiting Research Fellowship for Developing Countries


The JIRCAS Visiting Research Fellowship Program aims at the promotion of international collaborative research to address various problems confronting the countries in developing regions on a global scale, including the critical situation of food production, the progression of desertification and the gradual disappearance of genetic resources.

This fellowship program has two components: (1) Tsukuba-Okinawa (2) Project Site. Under the Tsukuba-Okinawa fellowship program, JIRCAS invites qualified researchers from research institutes in developing countries to carry out collaborative research for the rapid and sustainable development of agriculture, forestry and fisheries compatible with the preservation of the natural environment. This year, however, the call for applications for the former type is open only for Tsukuba. Researches will be conducted at the JIRCAS Headquarters in Tsukuba.

Upon return to their home countries, the fellows are expected to play a major role in the activities of their institutes, and work towards the achievement of the fellowship program’s goals.
