R&D themes chosen for the S-Innovation program are selected mainly from among the research output of various basic research programs which aim to create innovative new technologies, and which lead to the advancement of science and technology and the emergence of new industries. S-Innovation is based on the seamless, long-term pursuit of R&D toward the practical application of novel technologies. It is envisaged that the innovation resulting from such technologies will form the foundations of future industries.

This program was transferred from JST to AMED in April 2015, and after that AMED has not received any applications to this program. This program has evolved and is integrated into the ACT-M scheme.
