The “Local Science Network for Environment and Sustainability" will be established inviting scientists and stakeholders all over Japan collaborating in the efforts toward solution of local environmental problems to grasp the actual situation of scientists transforming to the problem-solving research through the interactions with stakeholders. New paradigm of transdisciplinary science is searched for to promote solution oriented science based on these findings. On the basis of the Guideline for Collaboration between stakeholders and scientists, a foundation for the transdisciplinary problem-solving research directly connected to solution of environmental problems is established.
Transformation of scientist communities will be promoted through the construction of the web journal adopting the stakeholders' participatory evaluation, the activities of working groups addressing a wide variety of local environmental problems, and the attempt for residential research internship toward the cultivation of young residential researchers.
