On the test days, people with disabilities and the general public will participate and verify the benefits and effectiveness of the initiatives. We will also work to engage a wider audience through activities such as soliciting support messages for each team's trial.
After this round of verification testing, a final selection is scheduled for October. Selections will be made from the perspectives of social impact, sustainability, and other factors. The selected projects will be awarded further support funding (totaling approximately 150 million yen) to work toward the social implementation of their projects.
