Selected – 2023

Bilateral Call for Proposals France Japan - Edge Artificial Intelligence - 2023

Japan and France are long-standing partners in the field of information and communication technologies. In the recent years, cooperation has been particularly developed in the field of artificial intelligence with the creation of the Global Partnership on Artificial Intelligence (GPAI). Japan has been elected as incoming GPAI Council Chair for 2022-2023 while France was the previous chair. These elections highlight the major roles played by France and Japan in the field of Artificial Intelligence and show the long standing and strong collaboration between the two countries. In this context, MESR and JST are pleased to launch a call on Edge AI to strengthen the tie between the two countries.

This bilateral Call for Proposals on Edge AI aims to fund projects promoting high-quality research collaborations between France and Japan. It targets pre-competitive basic research on Edge AI, including interested industrial partners.

The duration of the projects is four years; the projects must be part of a collaboration between four partners: French and Japanese higher education or research institutions and industrial partners for the research and development of Edge AI application sectors.

A maximum of three projects will be funded following the evaluation of applications.

Joint proposals must be submitted on the ANR and JST submission sites.
