13 October, 2020 (All day)

The missions last 3-4 days and are composed of one-on-one meetings at a targeted trade fair with showcase and networking events to maximize opportunities for the EU participants.

The missions facilitate the first contact that could be the door leading to new business opportunities.

Through this mission you have the opportunity to:

  • display your technology at one of Japan’s leading trade shows
  • meet potential business partners
  • create new business opportunities
  • develop partnerships and business cooperation on global markets
  • attend match-making events
  • increase your innovation capacity and become more competitive on a global scale (as an  SME)
  • prepare the ground for practical cluster cooperation across borders and make a more strategic use of transnational cluster cooperation on markets outside Europe in areas of strategic interest (as a cluster)

Clusters and SMEs from the European Union and COSME partnering countries.
Large companies may apply, but priority will be given to applicants from SMEs and from clusters active in sectors covered by the trade fair.
