The purpose of this report is to show a map of opportunities for venture firms, universities and research institutes in the EU to conduct knowledge transfer with Japanese counterparts in nine digital technology areas: automated driving technology, cybersecurity, fintech (financial technology), blockchain technology, edtech (education technology), martech (marketing technology), game, IT for fashion business, and IT for art and music business.
For this purpose, this report identifies several key factors to be taken into consideration, including technology development trends, relevant industry policies and social backgrounds, the technology areas to be targeted, potential Japanese counterparts, potential rivals, and business events through which to approach potential Japanese partners and investors.
This report also provides several policy recommendations for policymakers in terms of facilitating knowledge transfer from EU entities to Japanese counterparts.
