EIG CONCERT-Japan (self-sustained)

Connecting and Coordinating European Research and Technology Development with Japan

Basic Information


CONCERT-Japan began in January 2011 as an international ERA-NET project funded by the FP7. The project aimed to further develop existing cooperation between European countries and Japan by promoting and enabling effective collaboration in science, technology and innovation research. Among other collaborative activities, two CONCERT-Japan joint funding calls have been successfully executed. Although the ERA-NET funding concluded in December 2014, the participating organisations expressed a desire to sustainably continue the highly effective cooperation thereby established by means of further collaborative activities such as joint funding calls. The European Interest Group for Japan was established in December 2014 as a flexible platform for communication among STI agencies in European countries and Japan that are interested in cooperating together. Its informal membership includes the organisations that participated in the ERA-NET CONCERT-Japan Project, and it will provide the framework for communication towards sustained continuation of the cooperation established therein, hence the new name of this collaboration: “EIG CONCERT-Japan”.
