Given the competitive nature of the process, and the limit of 30 places, not everyone who applies will get a place. You should NOT book any flights or hotel stays until you have received an email from the EU-Japan Centre confirming that you have been allocated a place on the activity. Anyone who does make such bookings now, does so at their own risk. Even after places have been confirmed, should the EU-Japan Centre have to postpone / cancel / restrict participation for coronavirus-related reasons, the EU-Japan Centre cannot be held liable to refund your travel / accommodation / other costs.
Whilst your company is welcome to apply for more than one place, depending upon the numbers of places available and suitable applicants, the EU-Japan Centre may limit places to one per company.
Priority will be given to people who have NOT taken part in previous Lean in Europe visits.
You will strengthen your application if you give information demonstrating that you have a clear role in shaping your company's lean strategy / process management activities and outline the lean strategy as well as explaining why your company would like you to have a place" on THIS visit (i.e., what it hopes to get out of it).
People working for RATIONAL's direct competitors will NOT be able to join the activity.
