JEUPISTE Project

JEUPISTE Project

JEUPISTE (Japan-EU Partnership in Innovation, Science and Technology, FP7 grant agreement no 609585) is an EU funded project for the promotion, enhancement and development of Europe-Japan cooperation in Science, Technology and Innovation (STI). The project is supporting the EU-Japan STI policy dialogues through data collection and analytical reports. It also organises workshops and information days to promote cooperation programmes such as Horizon 2020 and facilitates partnership building through thematic events. The project furthermore addresses the individual needs of researchers and research organisations by implementing training seminars on Horizon 2020 project management and operates a help desk where any kind of inquiry related to EU-Japan STI cooperation can be addressed.

NCP Japan H2020

H2020 NCP Japan

EU-Japan Centre for Industrial Cooperation was formally appointed as NCP in November 2013 with governmental funding.

The NCP also promotes participation to Horizon 2020 through dissemination seminars and public events such as exhibitions and trade fairs.

Another major component is to give direct support to researchers, research organizations, and industry in Japan for their participation to Horizon 2020. This support is provided through:

  • Help desk service: guidance on choosing relevant H2020 topics and types of action, advice on administrative procedures and contractual issues, assistance in partner search
  • Provision of Japanese translations of key documents necessary for administrative staff of the research organizations

The main target of the service are researchers and industry within Japan.
