SCORE promotes the creation of ventures originated in universities and other institutions with high growth potential based on their excellent technology seeds.
There are 2 types of SCORE.
1) Team Promotion Type: JST directly supports researchers.
2) University Promotion Type: JST supports universities who, mainly Technology Licensing Organizations (TLOs), implement the program.
At SCORE（University Promotion Type）, universities promote the recruitment and selection of R&D projects as well as the operation of entrepreneurship support programs to create ventures originated in universities based on the technology seeds of principal investigators.
The period of support is a maximum of 5 fiscal years. However, even after this period, selected universities shall continue supporting university-originated ventures through a medium-to-long-term plan.
