JSPS- Japan Society for the Promotion of Science

The Japan Society for the Promotion of Science (JSPS) is an independent administrative institution in Japan.JSPS was founded in 1932 as a non-profit foundation.

The Japan Society for the Promotion of Science plays a pivotal role in the administration of a wide spectrum of Japan's scientific and academic programs.  JSPS's operation is supported in large part by annual subsidies from the Japanese Government.

Its main functions are:

-          to foster young researchers,

-          to promote international scientific cooperation,

-          to award Grants-in-Aid for Scientific Research,

-          to implement the Research for the Future Program,

-          to support scientific cooperation between the academic community and industry,

-          to collect and distribute information on scientific research activities.

Based on the negotiations between the State Fund for Fundamental Research, Ukraine (the SFRU) and the Japan Society for Promotion of Science about establishment on scientific cooperation in 2012 a partnership for coordination and preparation of the joint Ukrainian-Japanese projects was opened in the following areas: humanities, social and natural sciences, engineering and medicine. In total 32 projects of that Call for Proposals were submitted, 10 of which received high rating and financed. In 2013 the Memorandum of understanding between the State Fund for Fundamental Research and the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science on Scientific Cooperation was signed.


 In 2014 and 2015 within the framework of that Memorandum Japanese and Ukrainian party supported two research projects. In addition, in 2015 started new JOINT RESEARCH PROGRAMM for implementation in 2016 (F68) in all fields of Humanities, Social Sciences and Natural Sciences. The joint team leaders must be researchers affiliated with Higher Educational Establishments or Academician Establishments. Postdoctoral researchers or doctor course and master course students are encouraged to join but cannot be team leaders.


CNRS-The National Center for Scientific Research

The Centre National de la Recherche  Scientifique (the National Centre for Scientific Research) is the largest governmental research organization in France. The CNRS is involved in all scientific fields through 10 specialized Institutes, of which 3 are National and about 200 science laboratories. The European Research and International Cooperation Office (Direction Europe de la recherché et cooperation international-DERCI) coordinates and implements the CNRS policies in Europe and worldwide, and maintains direct relations with its institutional partners abroad.


On the 27 of November 2008 the Head of the State Fund for Fundamental Research of Ukraine (SFFR) and the CNRS’s General Director signed the Agreement about scientific collaboration due to established cooperation between the scientific groups and researches of Ukraine and France.

Based that agreement that get grant support from the Sides to joint  research projects in the following areas: perspective evaluation of the investigation of structural and functional and molecular and genetic changes in tumour cells; synthesis and enantiodiscrimination properties of inherently chiral calyx are necarboxylic acids; nonlinear magnetoelastic effects in ferri-and antiferromagnets; heavy ions at ultrarelativistic energies.

On the 23 June 2015 the SFFR Director Mr. Borys Grynov and other representatives of Ukrainian and French scientific organizations including the CNRS signed the Agreement to create the International Associated Laboratory, “Instrumentation Developments for Experiments at Accelerator facilities and accelerating Techniques” (LIA IDEATE).In the framework of this Agreement, starting from 2015, scientists from France and Ukraine can work  together in laboratories, research institutes and universities in both countries can provide scientific investigations in nuclear physics, medicine and laser technology, focus of joint science projects related to the development different detectors for the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) accelerator at CERN.



The Science and Technology Center in Ukraine(STCU) is an intergovernmental organization with the status of diplomatic mission, established in 1993. The STCU created to prevent the spread of knowledge related to weapons of mass destruction. To achieve this, STCU involves the cooperation of former defense industry (professionals working in the defense industry), scientists and researchers who worked on nuclear, chemical, biological or other weapons of mass destruction, nuclear and chemical industries, employees of private research centers , establishments and laboratories of the former USSR.


STCU Mission:

    To address the global security threat of the proliferation of WMD-applicable chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear (CBRN) knowledge and materials;

    To support the integration of scientists with WMD applicable knowledge into global scientific and economic communities through national, regional, and international research collaboration;

    To develop and sustain a culture of nonproliferation and CBRN security awareness and responsibility through education, mentorship, and training;

    To promote international best practices and security culture to mitigate CBRN security threats.

The STCU  main Headquarters is located in Kyiv, Field Offices are in Baku, in Chisinau, in Tbilisi, in Kharkiv and in Lviv. The cooperation is conducted according to projects financed by EU-Countries and the US.

The Fund for Fundamental Research of Ukraine signed a Memorandum on Scientific cooperation with the Science and Technology Center in Ukraine on 28May, 2015. The main objectives of cooperation are ensuring the effectiveness of research and innovation, support for the promotion and commercialization of R&D and Joint scientific and technical conferences, seminars and presentations.

DFG, German Research Foundation

The German Research Foundation (Deutsche Forschungsgemeinshaft-DFG) is the self-governing organisation for science and research in Germany. It serves all branches of science and the humanities. In organisational terms, the DFG is an association under private law. Its membership consists of German research universities, non-university research institutions, scientific associations and the Academies of Science and the Humanities in particular, the Max Planck Society, the Fraunhofer Society and the Leibniz Association, etc.

The DFG receives the large majority of its funds from the federal government and the states, which are represented in all grants committees. At the same time, the voting system and procedural regulations guarantee science-driven decisions. It devotes particular attention to the education and advancement of young researches, promotes equality between men and women in the scientific and academic communities, advises parliaments and public authorities on scientific matters and fosters relations with the private sector and between scientists and academics at home and abroad.

The close scientific collaboration of scientists of Ukraine and Germany began in July 2010 when the DFG and the State Fund for Fundamental Research (SFFR) was announced Calls of the joint projects for 7 research areas with the grant support by each of the Sides. During the period from 2011 to 2013 the SFFR and the DFG financed more than 10 joint projects in the following research areas: nanotechnology, environmental control systems, biodiversity.




BRFFR-Belarusian Republican Foundation for Fundamental Research

The Belarusian Republican Foundation for Fundamental Research (the BRFFR) was founded on May, 1991. It supports research projects, aimed at obtaining new scientific knowledge on nature, the man and society in the following areas of  knowledge:

 - physical and mathematical sciences,

- technical sciences,

- chemical sciences and Earth sciences,

- biological and medical sciences,

- agrarian sciences,

- humanitarian sciences.

The first example of collaboration was a Call of Proposals on scientific projects of the State Fund for Fundamental Research (SFFR), Agreement between which was signed on July 6, 2004. To take part in that Call there were submitted 162 projects, 44 winners of them in accordance with the results of their works published over 250 articles at the leading scientific editions.  During the period 2008-2012 the SFFR and the BRFFR held three joint scientific Calls. According to the research of winner’s projects it was published about 26 monographs, 57 patents and 330 journal issues, 300 abstracts.   

In addition SFFR, BRFFR and the Russian Fund for Fundamental Research on the basis of the signed Agreement during 2009-2012 held 2 Interregional Calls on Chernobyl and Ecological themes.
