This study examines researchers’ perspectives, responsibilities, roles, and views on challenges and opportunities influencing the development of Japanese–United States international research collaborations. In this study, eight factors related to international collaborative research are examined for their influences on international research collaborations. The study is based on semi-structured interviews with researchers who conducted international research collaborations supported by federal or national government funding agencies over multiple years in basic and applied research in Japan and the United States. The results indicate that a supportive research environment significantly impacts their work in international research collaborations. According to the researchers in this study, stakeholders need to work together and share knowledge to systemically improve policies and practices by addressing policy gaps and removing policy barriers, producing flexible options for research funding uses, and providing further support to all stakeholders across nations.
