September 5, 2018

On August 30, 2018, NEDO co-hosted the award ceremony for the "Award for Academic Start-ups 2018" at Tokyo Big Sight with Japan Science and Technology Agency (JST).

The award is designed to further promote ventures based on academic research and development accomplishments, existing start-ups' ambitious attempts, and support for academic start-ups from universities and companies.

There are 46 applications, which were subject to documentary examination and interviews by the "Selection Board for Academic Start-ups," which involved external intellectuals. Ultimately, seven academic start-ups and their academic and corporate sponsors were selected for the award. The award ceremony was held at the site of the "Innovation Japan 2018," where panels showing award-winning projects were exhibited.
