International exchange programs in the area of science and technology have seen increasing numbers of researchers from abroad coming to work in Japan. The numbers of researchers staying here long term, however, has remained roughly even since 2000. On the other hand, not much increase has been seen in Japanese researchers going to work abroad, and the numbers of Japanese researchers working abroad long term has actually declined to around half the number at its peak.
The Science and Technology Basic Plan has identified the proactive advancement of intellectual exchange as being a crucial area within which the utmost effort should be made. JISTEC is therefore carrying out survey research necessary to try to further this goal.

JISTEC’s capacity for producing survey research is unique because it has previously undertaken a range of projects, enabling the achievement of a more comprehensive understanding due to overlapping themes between separate projects. Furthermore, because of this overlap between projects, a detailed follow-up can be carried out and the results of past surveys can be consulted when appropriate.

The findings derived from this research are subsequently released for wider consumption. General overviews and reports of the various survey research carried out by JISTEC can be accessed below.
