Industrial Partnership Service with Japan for EU GNSS application and receiver makers

1. Introduction

* Do you want to develop business in Japan?
* Do you want to export your existing GNSS services and solutions to the Japanese market?
* Are you looking for Japanese technology partners to co-develop new applications?
* Are you looking for Japanese R&D partners for a joint development project?

If yes, GNSS.Japan can help you identify potential partners in Japan through the GNSS.Japan Industrial Partnership Service.

2. How does the service work (for EU organizations)?

To start using the service, fill in the Business profile of Entreprise Europe Network available here.

Your partnership application form should describe the nature of your requested partnership in Japan. For example, what product / services does your organization want to buy/sell? what kind of partnership do you expect to build? Which target segment(s) (R&D, sales, after-service maintenance, etc..) do to wish to engage in?

The GNSS.Japan team shall then disseminate your partnership application profile to its wide network of contacts in the Japanese GNSS industry, as well as through the industrial trade fairs in Japan which GNSS.Japan plans to attend, according to the planned calendar below (let us know if you have other events of interest which you believe could be valuable to expand the dissemination of your profile):
