Call for the EU-Japan Clusters and Regions Cooperation Event, 27-29 April 2020, Strasbourg

The European Commission, the EU Japan Regional Cooperation Helpdesk and the EU-Japan Centre for Industrial Cooperation jointly organise the EU-Japan Clusters and Regions/Prefectures Cooperation Event on 27-29 April 2020 in Strasbourg, France.

The event’s main objective is to support clusters, European regions and Japanese prefectures in their function of networking organisations by fostering the creation of long-term strategic partnerships between European organisations and Japanese partners. Furthermore, by gathering representatives from networking organisations, regions and prefectures, the event is a unique and novel opportunity for clusters to promote business by taking advantage of the recently enforced EU and Japan's Economic Partnership Agreement (EPA), the recently signed EU-Japan Strategic Partnership Agreement (SPA) and the Sustainable Connectivity Partnership. Hence, the event especially welcomes cluster organisations that bring their regional representative with them and have articulated interest in cooperation with Japanese counterparts.
