Supporting the demonstration of cutting-edge technologies to solve social issues!
"Smart East PoC Program 2022" is now accepting applications!!

 When private companies plan a demonstrative experiment, it must be very difficult to coordinate the implementation. Do you have any problems in planning a demonstrative experiment, such as not knowing who to consult, having to secure a location or going through complicated licensing procedures, or wanting to publicize your project so that many people will come to see it?
 The FUKUOKA Smart EAST Promotion Consortium will continue to provide support to explore the feasibility of advanced technologies and business models through the "Smart East POC Program 2022", during this fiscal year.
We will support your efforts to conduct demonstrative experiments in Hakozaki, the town that will be the starting point of the "FUKUOKA Smart EAST'' project.

Administrator Consultation and Briefing of Stakeholders

In order for the experiment to proceed smoothly, it is necessary not only to provide explanations to local residents, but also to help facilitate smooth discussions with schools, park administrators, police, and other authorities to obtain permits and approvals. We will support you in the execution of the demonstrative experiment by attending the discussions with the relevant parties.

Setting up the demonstration field

We will support you in securing an optimal site for the demonstrative experiment. In the past, various locations such as parks, community centers, shopping streets, and public roads in the city have been used as demonstration fields.

Recruitment of general monitors

We support coordination with local community councils, schools, etc. to ensure that residents and other interested parties can experience your cutting-edge technology and services in the most appropriate form.

Publicity and media attention

To raise awareness of the demonstration, the office will issue press releases. In the past, we have achieved a great deal of coverage in newspapers, TV news, and web media.

Let's face the challenge together to realize your groundbreaking out-of-the-box ideas!
We look forward to receiving your application.
