Grant-in-Aid for Scientific Research

The Grants-in-Aid for Scientific Research are “competitive funding” for the purpose of greatly advancing all kinds of “academic research” (research based on the free ideas of researchers) from basic to applied research, in all fields from the humanities and social sciences to the natural sciences. Peer reviews are used to provide financial support for creative and pioneering research projects that will become the foundation of rich social development.
