RIEC Nation-wide Cooperative Research Projects in FY 2022

Applications for the FY2022 RIEC Nation-wide Cooperative Research Project Program were received from inside and outside the Institute, and 117 projects (A:71, B:32, S:1, S-international:1, T:12) were approved. Type A projects have access to the Institute’s facilities and equipment, and 62 out of 71 proposals came from external applicants. Type B are short-term, study group-type projects, and 27 out of 32 proposals came from external applicants. Furthermore, one research project in Type A and 15 research projects in Type B have participating researchers from the private sector.

There are five types of research in Type A : Large Research Project, Young Researcher’s Project, Exploratory Research Project, Advanced Research Project, and International Cooperative Research Project. In addition to these five, Type B also has Industry-University Cooperative Research Project.

Type S consists of Inter-Organizational Cooperative Research Projects, and Type S-International Promotes Collaborative Research with Overseas Organizations. The Institute will take the lead in priority research areas in information technology, collaborating with domestic and overseas research organizations, including university-affiliated institutes, that are complementary and can create synergy.

Until FY2021, the Institute operated the Study Groups on Electrical Communication as a place to present and discuss research findings, establish new research fields, and foster exploratory research. From FY2022, however, the Study Group will be classified as Type T and become part of the Cooperative Research Project Program to foster the Institute’s students. Inheriting the Study Group’s philosophy, the Program will further promote activities of the Institute through presentations and discussions by internal and external researchers at conferences and lectures.
