Abstract
Japan Science and Technology Agency (JST) have launched a new program called strategic promotion of innovative research and development ( S-Innovation ). Projects chosen for the S-Innovation program are selected from among the research output of JST's strategic and basic research programs, such as CREST, ERATO, Sakigake and PREST, which aim to create innovative new technologies, lead to the advancement of science and technology and the emergence of new industries. S-Innovation covers R&D themes from the aforementioned programs and 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. Currently the program consists of four projects in which photonics polymers are included. The photonic polymer research consists of five topics such as development of fast organic photorefractive polymers for advanced optical communication technology, development of new device technology based on nano-ordered structures of polymers, development of three-dimensional vector wave memory, optical interconnect device technology using high performance photonic polymers and development of quantum photonic technologies with polymer optical nano-fibers. Each topic is funded approximately $1.0 M/year for ten years. The objectives and unique features of S-innovation and the highlights of each topic are described.
