The first international academic-industrial partnership framework for JST, this research aims for early-stage implementation of innovation in aging societies through academic-industrial partnered Japanese and Swedish teams.
Divided into 2-year Phase I and 3-year Phase II research periods, seamless long-term research development is made possible via approval process of Phase I to Phase II stage-gate evaluation.
In Phase I, the innovation and effectiveness of ideas are confirmed from the integration of Japanese and Swedish side solutions (eg. innovative devices, services and community design). In Phase II, the solutions are demonstrated to work in a real-world environment for aging society.
