The call for proposal is now closed for JFY24 (from April 2012 to March 2014).

We call for proposals on research projects that will perform complementary roles to our areas of study:

We seek challenging and tactical proposals that may not only shape and lead our research areas but also have broader impacts to other areas.

The proposed projects will be led by principal investigators only with no co-investigators. The recipients are awarded up to 10(4) million yen for about 1(5) experimental projects and up to 1 million yen for about 10 theoretical or experimental projects each year per project for duration of two years.
