Joint international research projects will be funded within the framework of the bilateral agreement signed between The Scientific and Technological Research Council of Turkey (TÜBİTAK) and Japan Society for Promotion of Science (JSPS) on 4 March 2014.

The applicants who wish to propose joint projects within the framework of TÜBİTAK- JSPS Cooperation Program should find the Japanese/Turkish project partner by themselves. TÜBİTAK and JSPS do not interfere in this process.

The application and the scientific evaluation processes will be held separately in TÜBİTAK and JSPS. Therefore, applicants in Turkey are required to submit their application electronically via http://uidb-pbs.tubitak.gov.tr for the 2544 coded call. The whole process has to be completed by using electronic signature. Japanese project partners are expected to apply to JSPS. (Please check the application rules of the JSPS: https://www.jsps.go.jp/english/e-bilat/call.html) Unilateral applications will not be taken into consideration.

TÜBİTAK and JSPS will evaluate the project proposals according to their scientific evaluation criteria. Both organizations will exchange their scientific evaluation results, and only the overlapping projects that are found acceptable for both parties will be funded. Two (2) projects will be funded under this call.

Only the research projects will be funded under this call. The projects will be implemented through the exchange of researcher and knowledge. Based on the respective bilateral agreement between TUBITAK and JSPS, each party will cover the costs of their national team. While submitting the project proposal form, the costs which are requested in the scope of the project must be stated in detail and justified. In the case of any exchange of researcher to be made within the scope of the projects, the sending party meets all the travel expenses.
