NEDO Project Activities (Budget: 1.27 billion US dollars)

NEDO aims to address energy problems and raise the level of industrial technology through integrated management of technology development from the discovery of technology seeds to the promotion of mid- to long-term projects and support for practical application.

National Projects (1.17 billion US dollars)

NEDO coordinates and integrates the technological capabilities of private enterprises and research abilities of universities, instead of hiring its own researchers, and organizes technology development activities as national projects to realize fundamental technologies (including technology demonstrations) that are diffi cult for private enterprises to develop by themselves due to the high level of risk before practical application.
