The Japan Science and Technology Agency (JST) (HASHIMOTO Kazuhito, President) has approved funding for six new joint research projects in the research field of “Design of Materials with Atomic Precision,” in collaboration with eight funding agencies from seven European countries as a part of the EIG CONCERT-Japan framework under the Strategic International Collaborative Research Program (SICORP).
EIG CONCERT-Japan is an international joint initiative to support and enhance science, technology and innovation (STI) cooperation between Japan and European countries.
In 2022, the ninth EIG CONCERT-Japan call for proposals was conducted from May 9 to July 18 in the research field of “Design of Materials with Atomic Precision,” to which a total of 11 proposals were submitted. Following an in-depth evaluation by a scientific committee and subsequent deliberations between participating funding agencies, it has been decided that JST will jointly fund six projects. The period of research support is three years, during which Japanese researchers in each project receive up to 18.2 million JPY.
