Following the successful results from last year, the EU-Japan Centre, Enterprise Europe Network representative for Japan, is organising again a cluster match-making mission in the Biotechnology sector. This mission aimed to support EU cluster organisations and their SME members in their efforts to access global value chains and develop strategic worldwide partnerships and business cooperation.The mission will give EU SMEs the opportunity to enter the Japanese market and establish technology or business partnerships and therefore increase their innovation capacity and make them more competitive on the global scale. The mission will also contribute to improve the cooperation strategies between EU and Japanese clusters.The mission lasts 5 days and is composed of market-specific business seminars, group company visits, one-on-one meetings at a targeted trade fair with showcase and networking events to maximize opportunities for the EU participants. In addition, the mission will provide EU clusters the opportunity to benchmark with the Japanese ones during a dedicated cluster session.The mission targeting the EU Biotechnology sector will be organised in the fringes of “BioJapan 2015” Expo in Yokohama in October 2015 (http://www.ics-expo.jp/biojapan/)For info, the participating EU SME will be eligible for a €600 euro scholarship provided by the European Commission through our organization.
