Research Plan and Method
The applicant should provide details of the research plan and the methods for achieving the objectives of the research in a clear and specific
manner, after succinctly summarizing it and providing an outline at the beginning. The plan should be divided into one for FY2010 and one for
FY2011. The literature should be referred to as needed and main points focused on. The plan and methods should indicate achievements
through a discussion from different angles, such as the action in the event that the research does not progress as originally planned. Where the
research plan is being implemented by a group, indicate the specific roles of the Principal Investigator and Co-Investigator (kenkyu-buntansha)
of the research team (using figures, tables and other visual aids). Include the necessity and rationality of the research group, and the relationship
to the purpose of the research from the scientific viewpoint.

Recent Research Activities
The applicant should fill in the important research papers/articles, books, industrial property rights and invited lectures relating to the research in
the sequence of publication from new to old with serial numbers assigned. Lines should be drawn between groups of research papers and others
published in the same calendar year to separate them. Forthcoming research papers/articles in academic journals may be included, only if they
have been accepted for publication.
Moreover, if the need arises, it is also possible to fill in the recent research activities of the Co-Investigators (renkei-kenkyusha). If the recent
research activities are filled in, double lines should be drawn to distinguish between them. (The double lines can be moved.) They should be
filled in per researcher in the sequence of publication from new to old. (It is not necessary to draw lines between every year.)

The abovementioned sequence of such items is not compulsory as long as all of the items are included. If there
are many authors, only include several authors omitting others (if any authors’ names are omitted, state the
number of the authors and the order on the author list for the related researchers). The Principal Investigator
should be marked with a double underline, Co-Investigator(s) (kenkyu-buntansha) with a single underline, and

Research Funding Received and Achievements
State the achievements of funded research that is being effectively used for planning the current research from the grants that the Principal
Investigator/Co-Investigator (kenkyu-buntansha) has received (including grants-in-aid for scientific research, research funding provided by his
or her research institution, research funding paid by any ministry/office, local public organization, research promotion corporation, private
corporation and any current research funding). Classify the grants into grants-in-aid for scientific research and others. The following should be
taken into consideration:
1) For each research funding, state the research category (name of the system for research funding other than grants-in-aid for scientific
research), period (fiscal year), title of the research project, whether the applicant is the Principal Investigator or Co-Investigator
(kenkyu-buntansha) eligible costs of the research. Also give a clear statement of the research achievements and interim and after-the-fact
assessment results (only to be made by the funding organizations). (If there are research progress assessment results for the grant-in-aid for
scientific research for FY2008 or in FY2009, they should be described in the section “Connection between the Research Plan and the
Research Project which received a Research Progress Assessment” on Scientific Research C (General) -9.)
2) Distinguish between grants-in-aid for scientific research from other research funding.

Connection between the Research Plan and the Research Project which received a Research Progress
Assessment
● If the Principal Investigator of the current application received a research progress assessment in FY2008 or in FY2009, as a Principal
Investigator of “Specially Promoted Research”, “Scientific Research (S)”, or “Grant-in-Aid for Creative Scientific Research”, he or she
should describe it in this section.
● The researcher should describe the connection between the research plan and the research project which received a research progress
assessment in this section (e.g. what kind of connection is there, how the researcher will advance the research which received a research
progress assessment in concrete terms, etc.).

Protection of Human Rights and Compliance with Laws and Regulations (see procedure for application)
Describe the measures and action that you will take if your research involves compliance with the related laws and regulations (e.g. research
requiring the consent and the cooperation of the other party when implementing the research plan, research requiring consideration for the
handling of personal information and research requiring efforts regarding bioethics and safety measures). This applies to surveys, research,
experiments which require an approval procedure in an ethics committee outside the research institution, such as for example questionnaire
surveys in which personal information is involved, interview surveys, the use of samples provided by patients, analysis study of human
genome, recombinant DNA experiments, experiments on animals, etc. Please indicate where this is not applicable.
Rationality and Justification of the Research Costs
The applicant should explain the rationality, necessity and grounds for calculating the research cost to be stated on the following page and
thereafter, based on the scale and organization of the research given in Research Plan and Methods. Indicate the necessity of the cost (e.g.
breakdown) if, in any fiscal year of the research project, any of the costs (equipment, travel expenses, and personnel (technical assistant, labor
cost, etc.), and suchlike) exceeds 90% of the entire research funding, or if there is any other predominant cost.

Application for Research Funding, Current State of Funding and Effort
Since examiners will refer to the information stated here in the second screening (collegial screening) when they discuss whether a research
project will be able to be sufficiently implemented without causing unreasonable duplication or excessive concentration of research funding. It
is necessary that the applicant correctly states the budget for the proposed research project that he or she receives and uses. The applicant should
take into account the following: (1) research funding under application, (2) research funding to be granted and (3) other activities at the time of
application by the Principal Investigator. Distinguish between sources of research funding, if there is more than one. For the exact method for
filling in the necessary data, the applicant should verify the procedures for preparing and entering the proposal for grant-in-aid for Scientific
Research C (General).
1) Fill in Effort with a percentage of time allocation (%) necessary for the implementation of the research where the entire yearly working
time is set at 100%.
2) State the title of the research project at the beginning of Research funding applied for.
3) In the case of a grant-in-aid for scientific research for “Scientific Research on Innovative Areas (Research in a proposed research area)” or
“Scientific Research on Priority Areas”, the applicant should state whether it is “planned research” or “invited research”.
4) Include research funding to be competitively provided by the research institution to which the researcher belongs.
