Monday’s Nikkei wrote that the GOJ is planning to establish guidelines for disclosing information about researchers at universities and companies, including whether they receive funds from foreign governments or entities. The paper wrote that the move is intended to prevent sensitive research and technology from leaking to China and other third countries out of concern over China’s “Thousand Talents Plan,” a scheme to attract foreign scientists. Minister of State for Science and Technology Policy Inoue told reporters on Friday that it is necessary for Japan to create an environment in which scientists can engage in joint international research projects without worrying about unreasonable interference from foreign nations or leakage of technology to third countries.
