At the interface between industry's needs and the priorities of the Japanese and European Authorities, the EU-Japan Centre organises debates, informs about the latest industrial and economic policies, presents feedback to policy makers and compares experiences and latest information with a view to sharing best practices and identifying areas of future dialogue and cooperation.

SEMINARS – WEBINARS - WORKSHOPS

The Centre's seminars and workshops both in Europe and Japan cover a range of issues, including:

  • Climate Change, Environment & Energy (emissions trading, carbon capture and storage, renewable energy, environmental goods, REACH, Green ICT, CO2 reduction in transport etc)
  • Trade & Investment (valuable and latest know-how about different industrial sectors in the EU and Japan.)
  • Industrial Policy (policies about SMEs, innovation, competition, CSR, food safety, converging ICT-standards, IPR issues etc).
  • Shaping Business (The "Shaping business - investigating issues affecting EU and Japanese industry" recorded lectures/webinars are aimed primarily at young professionals - the next generation of managers - and tackle some of the issues and themes affecting and shaping business now and in the future.)
