Digital Cluster/SME Mission

Are you an EU-based SME or startup active in the Digital sector?

Apply to our Business Mission program and get a chance to showcase your activity in a leading trade fair in Japan, for free.

On top of covering all trade-fare related costs, the centre additionally provides translators, interpreters, business training and a grant of 600€ to selected companies. (Transportation and lodging costs remains at the charge of the participant).


Through this 4-day mission, you will have the opportunity to:

  • promote your technology at a new event dedicated to Japanese & European innovations for Industry 5.0, targeting smart manufacturing and smart mobility meet potential business partners
  • create new business opportunities
  • develop partnerships and business cooperation in global markets
  • attend match-making events
  • increase your innovation capacity and become more competitive on a global scale (as an SME)
  • prepare the ground for practical cluster cooperation across borders and make a more strategic use of transnational cluster cooperation on markets outside Europe in areas of strategic interest (as a cluster)
  • Attend a networking event separate from the trade show, one day before it starts.


Apply to our Digital Mission to Japan here before November 24.
