Japan International Research Center for Agricultural Sciences | JIRCAS

Organization

The Japan International Research Center for Agricultural Sciences(JIRCAS) was established in October 1993, through the reorganization of its predecessor, the Tropical Agriculture Research Center (TARC), in order to include overseas forestry and fisheries research in its mandate.

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.
