JEUPISTE – Japan-EU Partnership in Innovation, Science and Technology

JEUPISTE (Japan-EU Partnership in Innovation, Science and Technology) aimed to promote, enhance and develop EU-Japan cooperation in Science, Technology and Innovation (STI).

The project supported the EU-Japan STI policy dialogues through data collection and analytical reports. It promoted cooperation programmes such as Horizon 2020 and facilitated partnership building through thematic events and innovation workshops. The project furthermore targeted the specific needs of researchers and research organisations by implementing training seminars on Horizon 2020 project management and operated a help desk where any kind of inquiry related to EU-Japan STI cooperation could be addressed.

From September 2013 to February 2017, the project contributed to raise the visibility of FP7 and Horizon 2020 to the Japanese community and linked researchers both in Japan and the EU to develop effective strategies and combine available tools to advance EU-Japan scientific and technical cooperation. Additionally the project was committed to raising awareness on the importance of connecting relevant actors in the field of Science and Technology with the private sector in order to enhance collaboration between Japan and the EU.

INSME was one of the partners of the project’s consortium and actively contributed to the implementation of its activities for the whole duration of the project.
