About e-Rad


Based on the Electronic Government Construction Plan (decided by the liaison committee of chief information officers (CIO) of each government ministry in July 2003), an operations and system optimization plan for R&D management functions, with the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (MEXT) in charge was formulated and decided on at a meeting of the liaison committee of chief
information officers (CIO) of each government ministry in March 2006, in order to promote the simplification, efficient utilization and rationalization of administrative operations. The system has been in operation since January 2008.
Moreover, in regard to the allotment of competitive funding and project research funds there are issues like the elimination of "unreasonable overlapping" (the circumstances in which overlapping competitive funds are unnecessarily distributed repeatedly for the same research theme undertaken by the same researcher) and "excessive concentration" (the state in which the entirety of research expenses distributed to one researcher or a research group in the said year has gone over the limit that can be employed effectively and efficiently and can not be used up during the research period).
Here we will explain the gist and effects of the Cross-ministerial R&D Management System (e-Rad).
Incidentally, e-Rad is the abbreviated name of the Cross-ministerial R&D Management System, which takes the first letters from research and development (research and development of science and technology) and combines them with the first letter from Electronic.
