The public invitation to and implementation of the RIEC Nation-wide Cooperative Research Project Program have been undertaken annually on a fiscal year basis. Usually, the public invitation process begins in mid-January, when guidelines for applying for participation in cooperative research projects in the following fiscal year are published, with the end of February set as a deadline for submission of applications by Principal Investigators (PIs). The cooperative projects selection committee screens application documents to decide applications to be adopted and informs PIs of results in mid-April. The period of research is from the day of the dicision to March 15. Each PI are required to submit a report on collaborative research after the end of his/her project.
As described in the “Philosophy and Overview” above, this cooperative research program is based on the precondition of cooperative studies with research collaborators of RIEC and, therefore, it is necessary for each PI to ensure a research collaborator of RIEC before applying the coopreative research program.
