Call for proposal to outsource a study to “research and identify European Industrial Technologies of high cooperation and business potential with Japan”
The EU-Japan Centre for Industrial Cooperation launches a call for proposal to outsource a study to "research and identify European Industrial Technologies of high cooperation and business potential with Japan"
The Outsourced Project described in this call is intended to support and complement the policy exchange in the framework of the EU-Japan Industrial Dialogue - "Cooperation on Industrial Technologies" with a business driven perspective focusing on EU and Japan technology licensing, transfer and cooperation, technological and regulatory cooperation through the identification of Industrial Technologies developed in the European Union with lower international exposure, which have the potential to become strong candidates for future partnering, transfer or licensing with Japan.
The identification of relevant industrial technologies of interest for this study shall be carried out without any limitation to the business areas impacted by eligible technologies, so as to maximize the initial coverage and diversity of available areas of future cooperation.
The geographical scope of research shall specifically cover all EU Member States, with a shortlist of at least 3 technologies of interest selected from each Member State, while providing particular focus on areas such as Central-Eastern and Southern Europe which are currently less exposed in the context of technology transfer to Japan. Identified technologies do not need to be segment specific, but should fall in the range of R&D to early commercialization stages.
The call is open until Friday 1 July 2016 17h30 Tokyo local time.
