Based on the needs of developing countries, the Japan Science and Technology Agency (JST) and Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) cooperate to promote international joint research targeting global issues. The aim of the programme is to acquire new knowledge and technology that lead to the resolution of global issues and the advance of science and technology, and through this process, to create innovations.
The scheme will involve participation by the South African Department of Science and Technology (DST) insofar as it concerns the pre-selection and submission of project proposals to the Japanese funding agencies, in which regard the DST is pleased herewith to invite South African submissions by Tuesday, 25 October 2016.
