This year’s support policy
This program will be implemented for the third year following last year. Last year, we received 14 applications and supported 4 teams. This year, the basic system remains the same, but the application form has been divided into separate questions to make it easier to give specific answers.

Comment from Representative Director Takumi Kawabetsu
The purpose of this project is not only to support the Robocon team, which has financial difficulties, but also to obtain support inside and outside the organization by appealing their efforts in the form of an application form. It is also about giving them the opportunity to experience what is essential in their careers. This project is now in its third year, and we have already seen applications of a very high standard.
We will do our best to support everyone through strict and effective screening and support. In addition, this project is made possible by the tremendous support of our corporate sponsors and individual supporters. I shall go.
