Horizon 2020 is the EU's largest program to promote research and innovation, in which everyone from around the world can participate, including Japan. The program makes top class research in cooperation with research institutions and companies in Europe possible. In this workshop, a representative from the Delegation of the European Union to Japan will give an outline of the Horizon 2020 program, a representative of the EU-Japan Centre for Industrial Cooperation, which serves as the formal point of contact for Horizon 2020 in Japan, will explain how to participate in the program and how to apply. The representative for EURAXESS will explain about functions of EURAXESS and other European funding structures. A case study will be introduced by a Kyushu University researcher who is currently participating in a Horizon 2020 project. We aim for strengthening the strategic use of this program and for cooperation between Japan and Europe.
