2) The state of preparation for starting the research as needed, such as coordination and contact with Research Collaborators, if applicable
3) How the research achievements are disseminated to society and people
Originality of the Research Plan
If applicant are or will participate in another research project, describe concretely whether the proposed project is related to the other project and, if so, how it will
be implemented from an independent stance. For that purpose, describe the type of funding, whether it includes an employment relationship, the research period,
theme and content, the division of labor, and other aspects of that research project. Please indicate where this is not applicable

Protection of Human Rights and Compliance with Laws and Regulations (cf. Application Procedures for
Grants-in-Aid for Scientific Research)
Describe the measures and actions 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, research requiring consideration for the handling of personal information and
research requiring efforts regarding bioethics and safety measures when implementing the research plan). 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 and interview surveys in which personal information is involved, the use of provided samples, analysis study of the
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 expenditure and
remuneration) 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 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
consideration the following points and enter (1) the research funding applied for, (2) the research funding to be provided and (3) other activities
at the time of application by the Principal Investigator. Distinguish between sources of research funding by drawing a line, 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 a Proposal for
Grant-in-Aid for “Grant-in-Aid for Young Scientists (A)”.
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) Include research funding to be competitively provided by the research institution to which the researcher belongs.
