Prior to making an appeal for proposals for biological electromagnetic environment research and evaluation technology research on radio wave safety to be conducted from fiscal 2016, the Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications (MIC) drafted basic plans for the implementation of these researches. In this connection, MIC made an appeal for opinions on the drafts from February 6 through March 7, 2016, and received three opinions in response to the appeal, and MIC has decided to announce the opinions and MIC’s comments on the opinions.
Furthermore, MIC has decided to finalize the basic plans and make an appeal from March 23 through April 21, 2016, for research proposals based on the finalized basic plans.
MIC has decided the above before the fiscal 2016 budget bill passes the Diet so that this project can be started promptly after the budget bill is approved. Therefore, it should be kept in mind that the implementation of the projects is subject to change according to the passage of the budget bill.
