In June 1996 Japan announced a new five-year plan for science and technology. It is concerned with promoting basic research through public funding and with changing the way in which research and development is carried out in Japan. This new Japanese policy was explored through in-depth discussions with government offices, industrial associations private companies, national laboratories and academics during a study mission to Japan which took place at the end of 1996. The report describes the main elements of this new policy and places it within the context of a national vision of the sort of society which is desired for the 21st century.
