"A-STEP feasibility study stage" Funding

The selection results of the Independent Administrative Organization Japan Science and Technology Agency's (JST) competitive funding Adaptable and Seamless Technology Transfer Program through Target-driven R&D A-STEP feasibility study stage" have been announced, and five research topics from our university have been chosen. It is now expected that even more of our university's research will be put back into the community.

A-STEP is a technology transfer support system covering the wide-ranging research and development phase in order to aim for the practical application of research results from universities etc. The feasibility stage supports the first step towards practical application, and investigates the possibility of practical application of basic research topics. From this year's public invitation for contributions, 1,123 applications from 3,634 nationwide were selected.
