About the Helpdesk

The service​s ​aim at supporting EU and Japanese companies, universities, research centres and individuals in their steps to search for technologies and understand the mechanics of tech transfer transactions, as well as bridging the knowledge gap about current available technologies from both Japan and the EU.

The services​ are supported by ​this website, which provides general content about intellectual property rights, technology transfer, and related topics between the EU and Japan.
