RCNP is calling for proposals for collaboration research networks in nuclear physics and related fields by researchers from multiple institutions. The COREnet aims to strengthen research achievements of outputs and to exchange physicist’s resources in the community. The purpose is to perform creative and advanced researches rather than collecting presentations like conferences. How they conduct the collaborations should be designed most effectively by the participants, i.e., in the form of a short-term meeting, multiple meetings or even by combining with workshops which are needed to achieve the aims.
Participants are either domestic or overseas scientists who perform nuclear physics and related fields from multiple institutions. They must be able to make important contributions to the collaborations such that they can be coauthors of papers or acknowledged there. Therefore, they cannot be like participants to conferences who do not directly contribute to the collaborations. To efficiently perform necessary paperwork, it is advised to include faculty member(s) of RCNP.
Period and location of implementation:
Collaborations are performed maximally for two years toward the end of fiscal year. Locations of implementation are institutions which one of the collaborators belongs to. They should not be facilities for general purposes such as conference halls accommodated in a hotel unless there are specific reasons. Using RCNP facilities including meeting rooms, computers and networks is welcome.
Results and acknowledgements:
The results of collaborations must be reported in the form of journal papers, conference talks, or by one of publicizing methods. In any of these materials, please acknowledge that the work has been supported by this program. For example, “This work was partly supported by RCNP Collaboration Research Network program as the project number COREnet-＜your project No.000>. ” In addition, a short report should be submitted by the end of fiscal year of the collaboration period.
A budget should be designed within 500,000 yen if collaboration period is one year or less toward the end of the fiscal year, and 700,000 yen if it continues maximally for two years. Use of the participants’ own sources is welcome. RCNP support office helps realizing effective and flexible execution of budget. In this way the participant’s paperwork will be minimized, and moreover, allocated budget to each collaboration is not requested to be balanced by spending unnecessary expenses.
Guideline for the use of budget
Call for application is made once a year toward the end of fiscal year. Applications will be peer-reviewed.
