The Japan Society for the Promotion of Science (JSPS) supports young Japanese researchers to participate in the Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings, co-hosted by the Council for the Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings and the Foundation Lindau Nobelprizewinners Meetings at Lake Constance. The purpose of this Program is to foster highly talented Japanese researchers with a rich global view and experience for the future of Japanese academia.

Annually, the meeting focus alternates between the three natural science disciplines of Physics, Chemistry and Physiology/Medicine, in this order. Every five years, an Interdisciplinary Meeting (Physics, Chemistry and Physiology/Medicine) is held in place of a meeting of either of the three natural science disciplines. In exception to the years or three when the Interdisciplinary Meetings are held, the Meeting of Economic Sciences takes place every two or three years on the same year a meeting in natural science is held.
