A platform dedicated to the cooperation between European regions & clusters and Japanese prefectures & clusters

WHAT THE EJRC HELPDESK CAN DO FOR YOU

ejrc-helpdesk-logoThe EU-Japan Regional Cooperation Helpdesk launched this autumn by the EU-Japan Centre for Industrial Cooperation (a joint initiative of the European Commission DG GROW and the Japanese Government under METI) is a new regional cooperation platform mobilising European regions and clusters, Japanese Prefectures and clusters, that fully exploits the EU-Japan Economic Partnership Agreement (EPA) and the EU-Japan Partnership on Sustainable Connectivity, signed by Prime Minister Abe and President Juncker in Brussels on 27 September 2019.

The EJRC Helpdesk will promote cooperation in terms of industry, trade, investment, innovation, tourism and people’s mobility. Such cooperation will be bilateral between European and Japanese stakeholders, but it may also include the EU and Japan jointly operating vis-à-vis third countries, e.g. in Africa, South East Asia, EU’s neighbouring countries, Latin America. 

The EJRC Helpdesk will provide appropriate information (existing tools, funding, instruments) and will support regions, prefectures and clusters for finding European and Japanese partners to establish new cooperation and reinforcing the existing ones. The helpdesk will give you the opportunity to highlight and share your best practices with Europe and Japan, and to connect you with the EU and Japan initiatives, which facilitate regional and business cooperation such as European Cluster Collaboration Platform, JETRO Regional Industry Tie-up, Enterprise Europe Network, Horizon 2020, and European Regional Networks. 

The three offices of the EU-Japan Regional Cooperation Helpdesk are located in Strasbourg (Grand-Est Region, France – office in the EU) and in the Gifu and Iwate Prefectures (offices in Japan). You can follow the activities of the EJRC Helpdesk on twitter @EJRCHelpdesk and the website (www.ejrc-helpdesk.eu).
