JST Connect Webinar: The JST-Mirai Program: Innovative R&D for the future (Part III on 1/24, Part IV on 1/27)

These updates are republished press releases and communications from members of the Science|Business Network

The COVID-19 pandemic has reminded us of the importance of cooperation in overcoming crises. At JST, a funding agency focused on human well-being for all, we are more than ever convinced that global-level solutions are necessary to tackle the immense challenges that await us.

In October 2020 JST started a series of webinars to bring JST’s wide range of activities closer to international stakeholders in Japan and beyond. This time, in the seventh and eighth editions, we will introduce six projects from the JST-Mirai Program scaled up from feasibility studies to full R&D projects through stage-gate evaluation. We will hear from project leaders about their research into a next-generation aquaculture system, direct dynamic wireless power transfer to EV, a high-throughput optical condensation system, smart robot for industry, breeding crops for low-carbon society, and a new material search method for material R&D.
