EU-ALLIANCE is a European partnership that supports the internationalisation of European SMEs whose activities are related to technical textiles, connectivity, advanced technologies, and advanced materials, for dual-use applications in the security and defence markets.

From 14 to 17 March 2023, EU-ALLIANCE will organise an exploratory mission in Japan for European SMEs. This mission will take place from 14 to 17 March during the DSEI Japan trade show, the biggest exhibition on the security and defence markets in Japan. 

The program will allow SMEs to connect with Japanese potential partners in the fields of security and defence. The Partnership will provide market insights through local experts, as well as legal and interculturality sessions. Matchmaking and networking events will be organised to facilitate contacts, as well as the visit to the exhibition DSEI where the defence and security ecosystems will be represented during these days. 

EU-ALLIANCE will organise an introductory webinar with a presentation of the mission, where it will share some market information and get first contact with local stakeholders working in the defence area. In addition, Mr Hitoshi Koyano from the EU-Japan Centre will share some major points on interculturality. This webinar will be organised on 15 December 2022.

The full programme will be finalised at the beginning of 2023. Until then, all European and Japanese organisations interested in the event or in knowing more about EU-ALLIANCE’s activities are welcome to get in touch with the partnership at: jrafton(at)

EU-ALLIANCE is co-funded by the COSME programme of the European Union. The partners are Techtera (France, Coordinator), Systematic (France), NTT (Italy), (Italy), SIIT (Italy), NIDV (Netherlands)
Deadline for registration to the mission: 31 December 2022
