(*2) Applications and research proposals are always invited and accepted - even after March 15, 2014. Schedules for the eighth RA and all of following RAs will be posted on the NIES GOSAT Project website in an appropriate timing. In case no proposal is submitted or no proposal is selected during the above period, the Three Parties will continue to invite research proposals under the ongoing RA number instead of making a new announcement number. For example, if no research proposal is submitted in response to the seventh RA, the Three Parties will carry the selection board over to the next RA committee meeting and continue to invite research proposals under the number of seventh RA. The schedule revised by adjustment will be publicized via the NIES GOSAT Project website or other appropriate means.
