European Innovation Day

10-03-2017 | 09:00 - 18:00

10 March 2017, Tokyo, Japan

The event is jointly organised by EURAXESS Japan, the Technology Transfer Helpdesk of the EU-Japan Centre, and French Tech Tokyo in collaboration with Hello Tomorrow Challenge. It aims to bring together the community of innovation oriented researchers, students, engineers or start-uppers of Japan and allow them to network and learn about the European innovation landscape and how to find European investors to launch their activities, or to perform technology transfer operations.

It is a dual event, with a pitch contest in the morning — in collaboration with the Hello Tomorrow Challenge – and a seminar with talks from experts and pitch simulation in the afternoon. The afternoon seminar will provide attendees with all the crucial points to succeed in their innovation-related endeavors by looking at Europe’s potential. Here’s what you will gain by attending:

  • Discover the European innovation landscapes and policies
  • Get pro investor insights on ideas’ valorisation and ways to effectively present your projects
  • Learn from legal experts about Intellectual Property rules concerning employees inventions in Japan and in Europe
  • Learn from a success story of an academia-industry licensing deal
