SAKURA Exchange Program in Science

 

Purpose of the Program

 

Asia is undergoing a period of dramatic progress. Promoting science and technology is a key engine to realize a bright future of Asia and it is vitally important to enhance the exchange of Japanese and Asian youths who will play a crucial role in the field of science and technology.

 

Based on this concept, “Japan-Asia Youth Exchange Program in Science” (SAKURA Exchange Program in Science) is the program for enhancing exchanges between Asia and Japan of the youths who will play a crucial role in the future field of science and technology through the close collaboration of industry-academia-government by facilitating short-term visits of competent Asian youths to Japan. This program aims at raising the interest of Asian youths toward the leading Japanese science and technologies at Japanese universities, research institutions and private companies.

 

Types of courses in the exchange plan

Based on the basic policy, the receiving organization in Japan prepares an exchange plan (or plans) in cooperation with the sending organization(s). In preparing an exchange plan, it utilizes the exchange contents provided for in the “Information Providing Program for Exchange and Support in Science and Technology” as described hereunder in appendix*. 

If necessary, JST will support the preparation of the exchange plan, including searching for sending or receiving organization, or even matching them.

There are three types of courses in the exchange plan, described as follows:

  1. Science and Technology Exchange Activity Course (referred to as "Course A")
    In this course the Asian youths coming to Japan participate in activities such as attending special lectures, visiting research laboratories at the receiving organization (it is available to include activities at another organizations) based on the arrangements made by the receiving organization, including university, research institution and private company. One week is regarded as the standard length of stay.
  2. Collaborative Research Activity Course (referred to as "Course B")
    In this course, university or graduate school students and postdoctoral researchers from Asia conduct short-term collaborative research activities with Japanese researchers based on the arrangements made by the receiving organization, including university, research institution and private company. 
    Three weeks are regarded as the standard length of stay.
  3. Planed Activity Course (referred to as "Course C")
    In this course the Asian youths coming to Japan participate in exchange activities such as visiting universities or corporate research laboratories, visiting schools and science museums, participating in scientific experiments and events, based on the arrangements made by the receiving organization. 
    Eligible organizations for becoming receiving organizations are limited to a local government, a zaidan-houjin (social foundation) or ashadan-houjin (social corporation) that does not conduct any educational activity or research activity in science and technology. One week is regarded as the standard length of stay.

 

Qualifications of the Youth to be Invited

Eligible youths are students of senior high school, university or graduate school, post-doctors or teachers, etc. under 40 years of age who have never stayed in Japan, as a basic principle. However, in cases where the plan seems feasible, junior high school students can be included with the senior high school students. (Accompanying guardians are a matter of separate consultation.)
