ANR – JST CREST joint call for three research areas: « Exploring Unknown Materials », « Society 5.0 System Software » and « MultiSensing » - 2023

Japan Science and Technology Agency ( JST) and the French National Research Agency (ANR, Agence Nationale de la Recherche) concluded a Framework Agreement in December 2017.

The purpose of this Agreement is to foster Japanese-French collaboration in scientific research and to fund joint research projects conducted by Japanese and French partners eligible for funding from each agency, within the framework of the JST-CREST program on three common priority research areas:

  • [Exploring Unknown Materials] Exploring Innovative Materials in Unknown Search Space
  • [Society 5.0 System Software] Creation of System Software for Society 5.0 by Integrating Fundamental Theories and System Platform Technologies
  • [MultiSensing] Research on Multi-sensing Biosystems and Development of Adaptive Technologies

The full description of the three areas is appended to the document on the national regulations for French applicants.

The proposals should be led by a Japanese Principal Investigator and a French Principal Investigator and will be evaluated via a peer-review procedure by ANR and JST, successively. The call is open to public and company conducting research and development in France.
