GTIE 2022 GAP Fund Recipients Selected

The GTIE GAP Fund Program held its first call for proposals in May, and 17 proposals were selected. The research teams selected for the GAP Fund will work on research and development until the end of March 2023, the implementation period of the program, with the aim of starting a business based on the seeds of their technology or applying for other support programs such as the JST’s “START Program for University-Based New Industry Creation (START)”.

Details of the research projects will be posted on the GTIE website by early October.
