Market Access workshops (online or on-site) in cooperation with local EU support organisations

In its ongoing efforts to help EU SMEs access the Japanese market, the EU-Japan Centre co-organises Market Access workshops only in cooperation with local EU support organisations. Members of Enterprise Europe Network or other EU non-profit entities such as clusters, chambers of commerce, regional development agencies, etc.

These workshops will cover information on how to access the Japanese market for EU companies interested in a particular sector and/or provide insights into the Japanese business culture.

The industrial sectors that could be covered during the Market Access workshops include:

  • Food
  • Biotech/medical devices
  • ICT/IoT/digitalisation
  • Clean-tech/circular economy

Cultural workshops cover:

  • meeting with Japanese partners
  • negotiation process
  • other Japanese business culture aspects

The agenda of the workshop could vary (depending on the preference of the partners in collaboration and whether the workshop is held online or on-site), yet initially, these workshops would address topics related to sectorial opportunities, including requirements, regulations, strategies, and others, as well as cultural aspects such as meeting Japanese partners and Japanese business protocol.epending on the subject covered, the workshops last 1/2 hours online or 3/4 hours at the premises of and in cooperation with local Enterprise Europe Network (EEN) partners or other EU entities.

All costs regarding the experts’ presentation fees, as well as possible travel (accommodation, flights), would be covered by the Centre. The date for the workshop would be scheduled at least one month in advance to ensure enough time for preparation and logistical arrangements.
