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

19 November, 2020

In FY2021, JST has agreed with ANR to establish the following three 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
[Trusted quality AI systems] Core technologies for trusted quality AI systems

To apply, principal investigators (PIs) from the Japanese and French sides will write a common joint research proposal and submit it to JST and ANR in parallel.

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 three 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 2021.
