Call for Proposals: 2023 DOST-Japan Society for the Promotion of Science (JSPS) Joint Research Program

We are pleased to announce the call for proposals for the 2023 Joint Research Program under the DOST- Japan Society for the Promotion of Science (JSPS) cooperation.

This bilateral exchange program provides support for research to be conducted jointly by Filipino and Japanese researchers in line with their mutual agreement on international scientific collaboration.

Interested participants are requested to coordinate with prospective collaborators/counterparts in Japan to craft their proposals. The Filipino researcher must submit the proposal to DOST through the DOST Project Management Information System (DPMIS) while the Japanese counterpart should submit the same to JSPS for separate review and evaluation. Matching of the projects will be done after the evaluation of both countries. Only projects matched by both DOST and JSPS will be implemented under this program.

For the application guidelines and procedure, please refer to the enclosed document. The call for proposals will close on 06 September 2022. 5:00 PM.
