The 2024 ASPIRE for Rising Scientists (Adopting Sustainable Partnerships for Innovative Research Ecosystem) from the Japan Science and Technology Agency (JST) supports promising Japan-based researchers who are expected to become leaders in the international research community in the future. The call welcomes collaborative research projects in AI and Information, Biotechnology, Energy, Quantum, Materials, Semiconductors, and Telecommunications. Participating countries include Japan, Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, Czech Republic, Denmark, European Union, Finland, France, Germany, Italy, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, South Korea, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, United Kingdom, and United States. The funding provides up to 90 million JPY (including indirect costs, which account for 30% of the total direct cost) for up to 3 years. Support will be provided to research teams that conduct collaborative research with researchers in the applicable fields and partner countries and regions of this call.

The following points are requirements for each proposal:

  • Each research team must include at least a researcher who will travel to the partner country to conduct research activities there for about one year.
  • Researchers from the partner country must be invited and included in the Japan-side research team.

At least 70% of the total direct expenses must be used for the purpose of fostering early-career researchers who are expected to become the next generation of top researchers by building and expanding international networks that will lead to advanced research and development, promoting researchers’ mobility between Japan and the partner countries, and providing them opportunities for top-level international research collaboration.
