Scientific Research: Opening the Door to the Future
Chapter 2 Basic Policies for the Promotion of Science
Section 1: Improving the Infrastructure for Scientific Research

The factors that need to be taken into account when considering policies to promote scientific research can be broadly divided into the following four areas:

(1) researchers and support personnel to assist them;
(2) direct funding requirements for actual research activities;
(3) facilities as venues for research activities and equipment as tools for research;
(4) information for use in research, including books and data from experiments and observations, and resources like specimens and laboratory animals.

These items are essential in all fields of research. MESSC has been working to develop and improve these resources, which constitute the infrastructure for all scientific research.

This section will provide an overview of the present situation and measures currently being taken with regard to research personnel, research funding, research facilities and equipment, and scientific information and resources. It will also examine future issues.
