The Japan Society for the Promotion of Sciences (JSPS) conducts two programs (a short- and a long-term program) under the Invitation Fellowship heading. Funded by a subsidy from the Japanese government, these fellowship programs were established to promote international cooperation in and mutual understanding through scientific research. The programs allow scientists employed at Japanese universities/research institutions to invite fellow researchers from other countries to Japan to participate in cooperative activities. These programs presuppose the existence of contacts between scientists in Japan and in other countries, a condition considered favourable to the promotion of future scientific cooperation and exchange. NSERC is responsible for selecting Canadian nominees for these fellowships.
