Tokyo Smart City Development in Perspective of 2020 Olympics - Opportunities for EU-Japan Cooperation and Business Development

This report has been undertaken in the framework of the new "Minerva Fellowship" programme initiated by the Centre in 2013 and is based on desk and field research as well as factual first-hand information. The information contained in the Report  reflects the views of the author only and not necessarily the views and position of the EU-Japan Centre for Industrial Cooperation,  the EU Commission or Japan authorities.

This report comes in the continuation of the previously published general Report on “Smart Cities in Japan” and presents a dedicated analysis on “smart city” related opportunities expected to arise from the infrastructural preparations of Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games. Firstly, the report looks at the policy plans and projects for a smart and sustainable Tokyo and, secondly, it investigates the EU-Japan business and cooperation opportunities.  The report concludes with a number of generic recommendations.
