The ‘V4-Japan Joint Research Programme’ aims to strengthen RDI cooperation between the V4 countries and Japan through the following supporting institutions:
  • Japan: Japan Science and Technology Agency (JST)
  • V4: International Visegrad Fund (IVF)
  • Czech Republic: Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports of the Czech Republic (MEYS)
  • Poland: National Centre for Research and Development of Poland (NCBR)
  • Hungary: National Research, Development, and Innovation Office of Hungary (NRDI Office)
  • Slovakia: Slovak Academy of Sciences (SAS)

Hungary participated with a budget of EUR 400,000 in the 2nd international call of the ‘V4-Japan’ multilateral programme in the field of Advanced Materials.

The call received an outstanding 44 project proposals, 25 of which involved Hungarian participants. Following the formal assessment, 42 consortium project proposals were peer reviewed. Following a multi-stage peer review process, a panel of representatives from the Funding Organization (FO) proposed to fund 5 projects, all of which were 1+4, i.e., involving researchers from all V4 countries and Japan. In order to support all 5 high quality projects, the National Research, Development and Innovation Office had to increase its previous allocation by EUR 237,667, with co-financing of EUR 59,160 from the International Visegrad Fund (IVF).
