GOJ to select target technologies for economic security fund

On June 21, the Japanese government held the first experts meeting to develop advanced technologies important for economic security. The government will select technologies to be funded by the “economic security fund,” which is to be on a scale of 500 billion yen, and will call for researchers to apply for funds by the end of 2022.


At the meeting, economic security minister Kobayashi Takayuki said, “If Japan’s scientific and technological capabilities continue to decline, Japan will inevitably become a second-class country. I would like to use this as an opportunity to reverse the trend.”


The meeting, consisting of seven experts, is chaired by University of Tokyo Professor Emeritus Matsumoto Yoichiro.
