Challenges, and Opportunities in the Space Sector

 

EU-Japan Centre for Industrial Cooperation & EURAXESS Japan
Joint Webinar of the EU-Japan Innovation Day

As innovation in the Space Industry is rapidly accelerating, its impact is reflected on the ever growing technology applications downstream on Earth, as well as the growing challenge to validate commonly agreed legal and intellectual property frameworks. 
 
Inventions from the space sector have so far made important contributions in various industries such as materials, energy, robotics, transportation equipment, medtech and food among others and this positive impact will likely continue to expand in the future.
 
The 2021 EU-Japan Innovation Day event will be the first of its kind with an EU-Japan dimension, aiming at presenting notable projects and initiatives from both sides in the field of space and covering some major intellectual property aspects, as well.
 
Despite the space industry has long been one of the most advanced technological areas in the world, and outer space activities are, in fact, the result of intellectual efforts, in recent years intellectual property issues have begun to be addressed in this field with more attention. With more private companies now heavily invested in space technology development and international cooperation schemes becoming increasingly widespread, a prerequisite for future collaborations is to be aware of applicable legal frameworks and options for an optimal protection of intellectual property.
