Adoption of A-STEP competitive funding program by JST
Atomis was adopted for A-STEP competitive funding program (Adaptable and Seamless Technology Transfer Program through Target-driven R&D) offered by JST (Japan Science and Technology Agency).
A-STEP program supports collaborative industry–academia research and development (R&D) based on the results of high-quality basic research (research output, intellectual property, etc.) to ensure that the benefits of such research are passed on to Japanese society. Depending on the R&D phase and the objectives of each particular project, A-STEP determines the optimal R&D funding and R&D period to enable the seamless pursuit of medium- to long-term R&D. Through this approach, the program aims to bridge the gaps between academic research results and industrial needs to realize highly effective and efficient innovation.
