Pre-announcement: JST/ANR joint call based on CREST program

29 november, 2019

In FY2020, JST has agreed with ANR to establish the following two CREST Research Areas as common priority research areas and to invite Japanese-French joint research proposals:

[Nanomechanics] Elucidation of macroscale mechanical properties based on understanding nanoscale dynamics for innovative mechanical materials
[Mathematical Information Platform] Creating information utilization platform by integrating mathematical and information sciences, and development to society

The joint research proposal should be written in English using the Common Application Form.

Only applications submitted to both JST and ANR will be considered for evaluation

The deadline for proposal submissions to ANR is earlier than JST (CREST).

Although the above two CREST research areas also invite regular proposals, PIs on the Japanese side may submit only one application with either a joint or regular proposal.

Please note that this call for proposals is announced on the premise of passage of the budget for fiscal year 2020.
