JST and the French National Research Agency (Agence Nationale de la Recherche; “ANR”) concluded a Framework Agreement in December 2017.

The purpose of this Agreement is to foster Japanese-French collaboration in scientific research and to fund joint research projects conducted by Japanese and French partners eligible for funding from each agency, within the framework of the JST-CREST program on two common priority research areas:

  • Quantum technology: Creation of an innovative quantum technology platform based on the advanced control of quantum states
  • Symbiotic Interaction: Creation and development of core technologies interfacing human and information environments

The full description of the two areas is appended to the document on the national regulations for French applicants.

The proposals should be led by a Japanese PI and a French PI and will be evaluated via a peer-review procedure by JST and ANR. The call is open to public and private partners.

The average ANR funding will be around 500 k€ per project depending on the number of partners and the ambition of the project, for a 5-year duration.

The JST-CREST call will be launched at a later date for non-joint proposals but the Japanese-French consortia must have submitted their proposals to ANR website before April 16th, 10AM CET.
