What is ERATO?

The government initiated Exploratory Research for Advanced Technology (ERATO) in 1981 in order to further innovative research in science and technology, and, in particular, basic research in problem solving. In 2002, in response to requirements of the new era, Science and Technology Basic Plans for the Second Term, and Strategies for Promoting Council for Science and Technology Policy, ERATO made a new start.

Please note that screening for ERATO projects is so severe that only 4 or 5 projects are selected each year by researchers in Japan and abroad.
