NEDO will launch an advanced support specialist development program, the "NEDO Technology Startup Supporters Academy (SSA)," which will develop human resources who have the broad knowledge and high expertise to support the growth of R&D-oriented startups.

The program will run for approximately four months, with the aim of developing high-quality support staff through lectures and workshops by representatives of startups that are leading their fields as well as experts on innovation. The program will also have practical OJT (on-the-job training) opportunities to learn about R&D startup support, a feature that is unique to NEDO's program. NEDO plans to issue a certificate upon completion of the program, certifying that the holder is equipped with the knowledge and skills to support R&D-oriented startups.

Through this effort, NEDO will aim to develop and produce advanced specialists who will serve as the core of R&D-oriented startups.
