Conclusion of International Exchange Agreements or MOUs
To promote energetic, systematic international exchange with overseas universities and research institutions, the NII concludes International Exchange Agreements (MOUs). As of March 2013, it had concluded MOUs with 78 organizations in 24 countries. To promote the sending of researchers and students abroad and the acceptance of researchers and students from organizations with which it has concluded MOUs, the NII implements the NII International Internship Program and MOU Grant programs and provides financial aid. It engages various other exchange activities as well, including joint research projects, seminars and symposia, in addition to researcher and student exchange.
