SciREX Center

The development of the SciREX Program called for an establishment of the SciREX Center in 2014 to coordinate all the SciREX activities among the member centers and stakeholders, and reflect the activity results on the government policies. The Center, located at the National Graduate Institute for Policy Studies (GRIPS), works as the HUB of the SciREX program (See the SciREX participation chart). It promotes co-evolution of policy formation and policy research and provides opportunities for the policymaking stakeholders and researchers to share information and network through seminars, symposia and workshops.
