Prof. Gabriele Bavota and Prof. Michele Lanza are among the recipients of the latest Strategic Japanese-Swiss Science and Technology Program (SJSSTP) Grants, the research funds awarded by the Swiss National Science Foundation (SNSF) and the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science (JSPS). The chosen project “SENSOR – SENsible SOftware Refactoring” aims to improve code maintainability while considering the specific context in which the refactorings are recommended, without sacrificing other high-priority non-functional requirements. This is a joint research project with Prof. Yasutaka Kamei and Prof. Naoyasu Ubayashi from Kyushu University, Japan.
The Strategic Japanese-Swiss Science and Technology Programme (SJSSTP) is aimed at researchers in Switzerland who wish to address specific research questions together with partners in Japan. In 2018, Swiss National Science Foundation (SNSF) organised the second calls for Joint Research Projects (JRPs) with the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science (JSPS). In a competitive procedure, eight projects were selected for funding.
