Networking Sessions Programme

Europe – Japan collaboration, an opportunity for world-leading research

Room 1.05, 21/10/2015 (14:50-15:35)


Aiming to shape a common baseline for future ICT research, collaborations between European and Japanese research communities are being promoted both through EU and JP funding schemes. This creates unique opportunities for research institutes, universities and companies to be actively part of world-leading research and create global interest around it.

This networking session puts together the experiences of three projects – ClouT, Festival and iKaas - which see European and Japanese partners come together and cooperate in different domains. During this session, ICT2015 participants will have the opportunity to listen to both European and Japanese project representatives experiences and lessons learned, from proposal writing to project execution. A short highlight of next H2020 possible opportunities for collaboration will be given as a starting point for building new proposal ideas. During the session attendees will have the opportunity to present their new ideas and/or competences laying the groundwork for future partnerships and cooperation.



14:50–15:05 Experiences and lessons learned on EU-JP cooperation.

This presentation will put together experiences and lessons learned coming from the partners of the ClouT, FESTIVAL and iKaaS projects.

15:05–15:15 Highlights on EU/JP H2020 future cooperation opportunities.

During this presentation highlights will be given on the next H2020 opportunities to set up an EU/JP collaboration.

15:15 – 15:35 Pitch session – Present your new ideas!

Attendees are invited to give a 2 minute presentation on new ideas for the next H2020 calls, an opportunity to collect feedback and meet potential partners. You can also give a self-presentation if you are interested in sharing your knowledge and experience in a new consortium.

To take part in the pitch session e-mail: isabel.matranga@eng.it (session organiser) or levent.gurgen@cea.fr (coordinator of ClouT and FESTIVAL projects)

ClouT, iKaaS and FESTIVAL project partners are looking forward in meeting you!

Expected outcome

Session participants will have the opportunity to interact with people who have already collected experiences in EU/JP collaborations. The set of lessons learned that will be shared with the audience will become fruitful baggage to be used throughout new collaborations. Furthermore, the pitch session and the presence in the audience of both European and Japanese participants will create breeding ground for the possible creation of new intercontinental cooperations.

My name is Jessica Michelson and I am working for the EU-Japan Centre for Industrial Cooperation (www.eu-japan.eu). Our organisation is depending from DG GROW and METI and aim at promoting business, tech transfer partnership as well as EU-Japan research collaboration. With many regrets I will not be able to attend this presentation but will be most interested in knowing more about this initiative. Would it be possible to meet another time? Best regards, Jessica Michelson (jessica@eu-japan.eu)

I would like to thank all session participants. It was nice to meet you all and share with you our experiences on EU/JP cooperation and some information on next calls. We hope you took home: some ideas on how to move forward to set up new EU/JP collaborations, new contacts for your next research activities and the essence of how rewarding an EU/JP cooperation experience can be both from the human and the research point of view. For any further information on the session topics you can contact me: isabel.matranga@eng.it.

I would also like to invite all those who need support in setting up new collaborations (both on the EU and JP side) to get in touch with the EU-Japan Centre for Industrial Cooperation (www.eu-japan.eu). Hope meeting you or hearing from you again!
