    This paper attempts to provide an overview of the situation of “women in research” in the Japanese context, based on a data analysis. Then, after a brief historical analysis of promotion policy for “women in research” through successive Science & Technology Basic Plans, current policy tools are examined. A comment from a micro-level perspective, including author’s experiences as a “woman in research,” will conclude.

    The purpose of this paper is to analyze trends in university policy reforms for gender equity in Japan, with a focus on Special Coordination Funds for Promoting Science and Technology (SCF). SCF is a budget for the implementation of science and technology promotion that enhances system reforms to develop human resources and create innovation. It supports universities and research institutions, as initiative models, to implement efforts to promote the activities of female researchers. TheMinistry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (MEXT) encourages universities and research institutions to set out relevant frameworks and action plans for gender equity, as well as to specify targets for hiring and appointing female researchers to higher positions through competitive project funding. In this paper, the author investigates how policy environment influences university reforms for female researchers and, as a case study, examines Kyushu University’s programs, such as the establishment of the support office for female researchers, the programs to dispatch research assistants to support busy female researchers, and the enrichment programs for the next generation.

    In cooperation with industries, our faculty is launching an education program designed to prompt more female students to go on to higher education and foster them as science and technology personnel who will be able to work for their company’s R&D division over the long term after graduation. That is what the WISE Chuo is all about. Through undergraduate and graduate educations, we will provide our female students with more opportunities for contacting their female role models who are currently playing an active role in business communities, to allow the students to feel R&D positions close to them and motivate them to choose such profession as their lifetime career. Even during their school days, we will also give them a place for acquiring knowledge and/or way of thinking necessary to work in the business world.

    It has been 23 years since the enforcement of the Equal Employment Opportunity Law. During this time, several other measures have been implemented, and the overall working environment surrounding Japanese women seems to have improved significantly. However, the reality still exists that the advancement of women in Japan is far behind the levels of other countries. The cause for this disparity was investigated. One cause is the persistence of stereotyped gender roles within Japan (“The husband should work outside while the wife stays home with the children.”) Another cause is the traditional Japanese business culture which expects the employees to work long hours. These two elements are considered to be the major impediments to the advancement of women engineers in Japan.

    In the context of the globalization of the economy, advancement in information technologies, and rapid aging of one’s society and falling birthrates, gender equality has become one of the critical issues in Japan. This document describes the problems on Japanese women’s career development, and introduces the activities of “IEEE Japan Council Women in Engineering Affinity Group,” which represent different role models and support networking among women scientists and engineers.

    The Society for Biotechnology, Japan was first established as the Osaka Brewing Society in 1923. As a result of the many historical and memorable events of the society, the present name had been established as Society for Biotechnology, Japan in 1992. In 2002, the 80th anniversary of this society was celebrated in its birthplace, Osaka. The society originally established as a local community in Osaka, but now, we have six branches and total 4, 000 members. As indicated by its original name, this society initially consisted of scientists and engineers involved in the production of alcoholic beverages and fermented foods. Concomitant with the development of the fermentation industry, the scope of this society was enlarged to cover biotechnologies relating to microbial production, enzymes, bioactive materials, plants, animal cells and the environment. Currently, the society intends to cover newly developed fields such as postgenomics, nanobiotechnology and medical/ pharmaceutical biotechnology.
