EU-Japan cluster collaboration is well established since 2008. The EU-Japan Centre for Industrial Cooperation that has been launched in a collaborative approach offers services to European and Japanese clusters to help them identify potential cooperation partners in the reciprocal regions (matchmaking missions, thematic focus…).
Based on close economic ties and thanks to a stable and fruitful business and innovation environment, bilateral trade is well established, notably focussing on some high-technology sectors and diplomatic relations are also very positive.
Japan has a clear cluster strategy and offers a number of cluster programmes on a national and regional level that have resulted in a rich cluster community and the creation of the novel concept of “Knowledge Clusters” that refers to a system for technological innovation, organised by a local initiative around universities and other public research institutions with original R&D topics, as well as companies.
