Digital Economy in Japan and the EU - an Assessment of the Common Challenges and the Collaboration Potential

This report has been undertaken in the framework of the new "Minerva Fellowship" programme initiated by the Centre in 2013 and is based on desk and field research as well as factual first-hand information. The information contained in the Report  reflects the views of the author only and not necessarily the views and position of the EU-Japan Centre for Industrial Cooperation,  the EU Commission or Japan authorities.

This study has been independently prepared with the aim of providing a source of inspiration for enhanced EU-Japan dialogue and cooperation on the Digital Economy which is expected to play a key role in unlocking economic growth, competitiveness, as well as in the general improvement of societal wellbeing. The study analyses the Digital Economy landscape in the EU and Japan and their related strategic policy agendas and identifies a number of common challenges and matching policy priorities, on the base of which it makes a number of recommendations for cooperation on policy exchange and benchmarking, R&D/Horizon 2020 and on regulatory issues.
