CONCERT-Japan (Connecting and Coordinating European Research and Technology Development with Japan) began as an ERA-NET project funded by the FP7 between 2011 and 2014. Its primary function is to collaboratively implement multilateral joint funding with the objective of enhancing the cooperation between European countries and Japan in various fields of STI.
CONCERT-Japan is now continuing independently of EU support as an activity of the European Interest Group (EIG), hence the name "EIG CONCERT-Japan".
