Brief Background Description of Research of the Applicant
State the background history of research in the sequence from new to old, starting from the graduation of the final education. Clearly indicate
details of the research and noteworthy matters (e.g., awards).
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 effort regarding bioethics and safety measures). This applies to surveys, research,
experiments which require an approval procedure in an ethics committee inside and outside the research institution, such as for example
questionnaire surveys in which personal information is involved, interview surveys, the use of provided samples, 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 fill in the rationality, necessity and grounds for calculating the research costs 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
Young Scientists A/B.
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.
