The Japan Science and Technology Agency (JST) has announced the Project Managers (PMs) selected for the four Moonshot Goals handled by JST under the Moonshot Research and Development Program.

Open calls for PMs were held for each goal, and applications were reviewed by PDs in cooperation with external experts. A total of 127 applications were received, after which document and interview screening was conducted to make a final selection of 19 PMs.

Under the direction of their PD, selected PMs will refine their plans to achieve their Moonshot Goal so that the R&D will be more effective and efficient. Once their PD is satisfied with the level of refinement, each PM can begin their R&D project.
