About the grant for SMEs: Will each participant receive the grant?

The grant will be allocated per participant. Should there be 2 (or more) participants from the same company the grant will be given to each participant.

Where do the courses take place?

All parts of the training programme take place in various places in Japan. Lectures are usually given at our head office located in Tokyo.

Where do participants stay during the course?

We usually make a group reservation in the same hotel(s) for all participants.

How will I be prepared before the course?

For all our training courses we provide participants with some practical information (how to reach the hotel from the airport, accommodation facilities, meeting-point times and locations, subway and city maps, telephone rental information, etc).

A pre-departure briefing (online webinar) is also organized approximately 2 weeks before the start of the programme.

Can I apply together with a colleague?

We accept multiple applications from a same company. However you will be asked to mention a first-choice candidate in case we cannot offer you several places.

Each candidate should fill in a separate application form

How will my application be assessed?

A Selection Board will assess candidates based on written information in the application documents.

When will I know if I am selected?

The Selection Board takes place after the application deadline date. Once places are allocated, the European Commission and the EU-Japan Centre's Head Office are asked to approve its decision. Final results are announced to applicants in the days following the Selection Board.

I am not working for an industrial company, so can I still apply?

The Selection Board gives priority to candidates working for industrial companies; however, individual background, experience, concrete projects, etc. are also taken into consideration.

Consulting firms may apply but will not be given priority.

Can I apply several times?

You are free to apply for several training programmes or several times for the same programme.

What is the course content?

For all our training courses, previous mission reports are available upon request.

Nationalities eligible for participating in EU-Japan Centre's activities?

Eligible applicants are those from the 28 EU Member States and COSME countries (Third countries' participation in the COSME programme).
