respectively within the same fiscal year or if a researcher engaging in a continued research project in the screening division General (funding for
FY2010 internally accepted) applies for a grant for a new research project in the screening division Overseas Academic Research. Leave these pages
blank if not applicable, that is, if your application does not correspond to the screening division General (including continued research projects).

Recent Research Activities
The Principal Investigator and the Co-Investigator (kenkyu-buntansha) should fill in important research papers/articles, books, industrial
property rights and invited lectures realized in the last 5 years 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/articles and other ones published in the same calendar year to
separate them. Forthcoming research papers/articles in academic journals may be included, 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.)

are many authors, only include some 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 the

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 delivered by the
research institution to which the researcher belongs, research funding by any ministry/office, local public organization, research promotion
corporation, private corporation, including the current funding). Classify the achievements into grants-in-aid for scientific research and others.
The following should be taken into account.
1) For each research funding, clearly state research category (name of funding system for others than grants-in-aid for scientific research),
period (fiscal year), title of the research project, whether a researcher is the Principal Investigator or a Co-Investigator (kenkyu-buntansha),
and eligible costs (direct cost) and describe the research achievements and interim and post-fact assessment results (to be made by the related
funding organization). (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 A/B (Overseas) - 12.)
2) Distinguish between grants-in-aid for scientific research and others.

Connection between the Research Plan and the Research Project which received a Research Progress

● 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
[It is essential that the relevant applicants fill in this section. (see procedures 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 inside and 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 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, personnel (technical assistant, labor
cost, etc.), and suchlike) exceeds 90% of the entire research funding, or if there is any other predominant cost.

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 A/B (Overseas).
1) Fill in Effort with a percentage of allocation time (%) necessary for implementation of the research provided that 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) State whether it is planned or invited research in the case of a grant-in-aid for Scientific Research on Priority Areas or Scientific Research
on Innovative Areas of the type creating an innovative research area.
