Goals of U.S.-Japan Science and Technology Cooperation

The principal government mechanisms for attaining U.S. national goals in S&T relations with Japan include the U.S.-Japan Agreement on Cooperation in Science and Technology [“for peaceful purposes”](1988), the U.S.-Japan Framework for a New Economic Partnership (including the Common Agenda for Cooperation in Global Perspective), and a number of agency-to-agency agreements. The agreements set forth broad goals and rather than specific measurements of progress.

  1. U.S. and Japan sharing responsibility in contributing to the world 's future prosperity and well-being by strengthening respective national research and development policies.

  2. Sustaining long term investments in basic research and creating dynamic research and development environments with a view to generating fundamental new knowledge.

  3. Ensuring the protection of intellectual property rights so as to preserve the value of innovations derived from joint collaboration.

  4. Providing for the smooth application of new technologies.

  5. Nurturing and expanding the next generation's human resources in science and technology.

  6. Ensuring long-term mutually beneficial international S&T collaboration through long-term partnerships between scientists of different nationalities, performance of joint research and development at each other's facilities, education and training of each other's promising students, and publication of joint research and development results in international journals.

  7. Affirming commitment to equitable contributions and comparable access to each nation's R&D systems.

  8. Sharing responsibilities and mutual and equitable contributions and benefits commensurate with the two nations' respective S&T strengths and resources.

  9. Promoting international competitiveness.

  10. Promoting S&T cooperation in areas of global concern.
