Today, I will show you some live cases of awarded projects of academic, professional and technical service industries of Business Restructuring Grant Program (事業再構築補助金 Jigyo Saikochiku Hojokin) (the 3rd round of 2021). In these industries, there are remarkable number of cases shifting from face-to-face service to online service. It is, however, not just going online; in many cases, it is also accompanied by the construction of dedicated websites and systems. Building websites and systems is expensive, so this grant is used as a financing tool. There are also projects that are aimed at meeting the needs of decarbonization and use new technologies such as AR/VR and AI.
