Background
At the Second East Asia Summit (EAS), held in January 2007, Mr. Shinzo Abe, Prime Minister of Japan, announced a plan to implement a \35-billion youth exchange program, inviting about 6,000 young people to Japan mainly from the EAS member states every year for the next five years. Based on this plan, the Government of Japan has launched the Japan-East Asia Network of Exchange for Students and Youths (JENESYS) Programme, under which it is conducting a variety of exchange activities. As a part of the JENESYS Programme, the Exchange Program for East Asian Young Researchers works to create regional cooperation among Asian countries through exchanges of next generation researchers.

Purpose
The “Exchange Program for East Asian Young Researchers, JSPS (Japan Society for Promotion of Science)” works to establish and expand networks with researchers from EAS member countries, and helps to develop high-caliber human resources and to create a regional science and technology community. University of Hyogo (Japan) is working on a flame of this exchange program in 2009, and now calling motivated and talented young researchers from Chulalongkorn University (Thailand), Suranaree University of Technology (Thailand), Curtin University of Technology (Australia) and Institute of Microbial Technology (India).
