The aim of this program is to contribute solutions to challenges facing world today and to bolster Japan's scientific and technological capabilities through collaboration with a broad range of countries.

JST liaises with funding agencies in counterpart countries and regions, and on an equal partnership basis selects research projects supported by both countries. JST provides large-scale funding to Japanese researchers though SICORP and counterpart researchers are to obtain project funding approximately equivalent to SICORP from funding agencies in their respective countries.
