The Japan International Research Center for Agricultural Sciences (JIRCAS), a National Research and Development Agency under the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries, plays a core role in international collaborations in the field of agriculture, forestry and fisheries research in Japan. From April 2016, its fourth five-year mid-term plan will commence. Under this new plan, we will avoid conducting research for research’s sake, but instead, we will make innovative organizational changes aimed at creating “research results and technology development that meet global challenges” more efficiently, more effectively, and with a high cost performance.
JIRCAS Working Report No.83 and No.84 published.
