Call for JWRI International Joint Research Collaborators (JIJReC), 2023


There are two categories in the JIJReC program:
 1) General Research Project
 2) Pioneering Research Project
Applications are welcome in either or both categories.

General Research Project
Application Guidelines


*If you have already registered
a "Pioneering Research Project" ,
please proceed to “Dual application”
in the column below.

We invite the JIJReC to conduct a joint research project with a subject chosen from the list provided by JWRI under "General Research Project”.

Pioneering Research Project

Application Guidelines


*If you have already registered
a "General Research Project",
please proceed to "Dual application"

in the column below.

Important and pioneering research subjects are listed by JWRI. We invite the JIJReC to choose a joint research subject from this list under the "Pioneering Research Project".
A Pioneering Research Project addresses one or more of the research subjects specified by JWRI’s from a comprehensive point of view, and is conducted by teams organized with other JIJReCs and with JWRI’s professors. The object of such a project is to contribute to the progress of “The Joint Usage/Research Center on Joining and Welding, Osaka University” through constructive discussions and collaborations across diverse academic fields.
In addition, by carrying out such a project, we aim to construct a new research network and further to create a new research field.

There are three ways to promote Pioneering Research Project as follows;。
Sharing of Approaches

For a specific research subject or subjects, the JIJReCs each bring their own novel approach and ideas to the subject, and then progress the research and create the new research field through the new research network.

Feasibility Study

Principally by hosting workshops and symposia, JWRI develops associations with diverse academic fields and seeks new research subjects, to assess the possibilities for the creation of new research fields.


Proposals based on new ideas or concepts
