EU-Japan Green Transition Matchmaking – joint efforts for green economy business partnerships

Last March, the EU-Japan Centre for Industrial Cooperation organised an EU-Japan Green Transition Matchmaking event to enable business partnerships that contribute to a low-carbon society. The event was organised in cooperation with EU Member States' Trade Promotion Organisations, Japan External Trade Organisation (JETRO), the European Innovation Council (EIC) Accelerator and other partners.

The event consisted of two main parts:

  • A virtual B2B matchmaking event “EU-Japan Green Transition” on 14-31 March 2022, with online matchmaking sessions and accompanying webinar sessions.
  • A hybrid exhibition known as the “EU- Green Transition Pavilion” at Decarbonisation Expo / World Smart Energy Week at Tokyo Big Sight, held on 16-18 March to promote the online platform, and jointly organised with Business France and the Wallonia Export-Investment Agency.

171 companies from Europe and Japan participated in the Matchmaking.  42 video call meetings have taken place on the online matchmaking platform as of 31 March and many visitors at the Decarbonisation Expo in Tokyo have been informed about innovative European companies in the Green Transition field.

After a temporary closure at the end of March, the Matchmaking has been transformed into a long-term event that will be active until March 2023 to accommodate more participants and arrange additional meetings. Stakeholders from Japan and Europe in the Green Transition field, who want their activities to be hosted on this online platform, can contact Daniel Gralki, EEN Japan Consultant at the EU-Japan Centre:
