REC-N-COMP is a European partnership that supports the internationalisation of European SMEs whose activities are related to the manufacturing of composites from recycled materials. 

From 15 to 19 May 2023, REC-N-COMP will organise an exploratory mission in Japan for SMEs from Italy, France, Poland, and Belgium. During this event, the participants will take part in B2B meetings with Japanese companies and professional organisations to discuss partnerships related to recycled materials-based and sustainable composites between Japan and the EU.

After a first couple of days in Tokyo, the participants will travel to Osaka. There, they will attend the “Highly-functional Material Week” event. Held twice a year, it gathers several expositions connected to REC-N-COMP, including Plastic Japan, and Sustainable Material Expo. This exhibition will allow the participants to meet potential partners in Japan, and to know more about the current stakes of the composites market in Japan, more specifically the stakes related to sustainability.
The full programme will be finalised in the first trimester of 2023. Until then, all European and Japanese organisations interested in the event or in knowing more about REC-N-COMP are welcome to get in touch with the partnership.

REC-N-COMP is co-funded by the COSME programme of the European Union. The partners are NTT (Italy, leader), Techtera (France), PGM (Poland), Flanders Make (Belgium), and Cluster Legno Arredo (Italy).
