Tokyo, 23 September 2020, starting from October 2020, the EU-Japan Technology Transfer Helpdesk (the “Helpdesk”) and SHIGA International Patent Office (“Shiga”) will work together on a new endeavor to facilitate partnerships among universities and startups from the EU, and large corporates from Japan. The initiative aims at filling the gap between technology creators from the EU and technology developers based in Japan. The program will allow technology transfer managers, researchers and startup entrepreneurs from the EU to pitch online in front of an audience of IP and R&D managers (based in Japan), to promote licensing and R&D collaboration opportunities between the EU and Japan. Technologies will be selected by the Helpdesk and Shiga and presented to the audience by geography, institution or industry. Further details on how to participate in this initiative will be released in the following weeks.
The EU-Japan Technology Transfer Helpdesk is an initiative of the EU-Japan Centre for Industrial Cooperation, which aims at supporting EU and Japanese companies, universities, research centres and individuals in their steps to search for partners 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.
