Matching the EU – Japan Space Technological Needs

The EU-Japan Centre launches the EU-Japan Technology Transfer Helpdesk, a new service aimed at supporting EU and Japanese companies and individuals in their steps to search for and acquire technologies, as well as bridging the knowledge gap about current available technologies from both Japan and the EU.

Within this frame a series of webinars covering various technology transfer topics will be held.

What can ESA IPRs portfolio offer to foster the EU – Japan industrial cooperation in the Space Sector?

Why this knowledge is useful to have in order to work with/in Japan?
