Apply for the Next Biotech Mission for EU SME & Clusters

In autumn 2021, the EU-Japan Centre for Industrial cooperation will again organise a Mission to Japan in the fields of pharma, biotechnologies and life sciences.

  • Mission dates: 13-15 October 2021
  • Application deadline: 27 May 2021

The Mission will consist of an orientation webinar, participation in a partnering event co-organised with a local Japanese Cluster and a joint fair participation in BioJapan with integrated Partnering from 13-15 October 2021. This Mission is an excellent opportunity to get into contact with Japanese pharma and life science companies, which are looking for R&D partners.
Representatives of European Clusters and SMEs from the following fields are invited to send their application: drug and drug discovery, cell therapies, regenerative medicine, diagnostic agents
drug discovery support, digital medicine, digital therapeutics, healthcare/preventive medicine
If the current travel restrictions due to COVID-19 continue, the Mission will be carried out online. However, a physical mission is not yet excluded and a proposal will be submitted to successful applicants in June, should the situation allow for it.

For details about eligibility cost and scenarios depending on the COVID-19 situation, please see the mission webpage.

We are a new start-up currently looking for new potential customers. The Japanese market is a very important market for us, so Biotech & Pharma Virtual Partnering Event 2020 was a very interesting event for our company.
How did you find the platform and your meetings online?
It was a very handy platform with a good search option to identify relevant customers and meeting partners. The internal messaging system (to fix meetings) was very good as well.
