EU-Japan cooperation in ICT and Horizon 2020

Tokyo

Horizon 2020 is the biggest EU Research and Innovation programme ever with nearly €80 billion of funding available over 7 years and open to participation from all over the world, including Japan. Although Japan is not eligible for automatic funding, Japanese organizations will be able to benefit from collaboration with top class European research institutes and companies through participation. Following the opening of new calls in the ICT field and other relevant areas, this seminar will provide practical information on how to participate in Horizon 2020. Examples of Japanese organisations participating in European framework projects will be provided, followed by practical insights from panelists with experience of participation in European funding programmes in order to strengthen the future research cooperation.

Since the Science and Technology cooperation agreement between the EU and Japan came into effect on 29 March 2011, EU-Japan cooperation in R&D has been reinforced. Leaders at the EU-Japan Summit in November 2013 welcomed the establishment of the National Contact Point in Japan, underlined the importance of enhanced cooperation in ICT, and called for further efforts to unlock the potential of Japan-EU science and technology cooperation. A few dozen of European Framework projects with Japanese participation have already been started in the ICT field. In addition, jointly funded projects between the EU and Japan (with MIC/NICT) have also been launched in 2013 and 2014, and more are expected in 2015 or later.
