JST and the French National Research Agency (Agence Nationale de la Recherche; “ANR”) 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 two common priority research areas:
The full description of the two areas is appended to the document on the national regulations for French applicants.
The proposals should be led by a Japanese PI and a French PI and will be evaluated via a peer-review procedure by JST and ANR. The call is open to public and private partners.
The average ANR funding will be around 500 k€ per project depending on the number of partners and the ambition of the project, for a 5-year duration.
The JST-CREST call will be launched at a later date for non-joint proposals but the Japanese-French consortia must have submitted their proposals to ANR website before April 16th, 10AM CET.
