Starting from FP7 (2007-2013), the EU and Japan have engaged in many joint research projects. This page lists examples of joint research projects carried out under EU's Research Framework Programmes FP7 (2007-2013) and Horizon 2020 (2014-2020) with particular attention to the EU-Japan aspect of the cooperation, focusing on the merit of the Japanese partners, how they got involved in the project and what kind of funding arrangements were used as Japanese organisations are not eligible for automatic funding from the European Commission.
A summary article on Japanese participation in FP7/H2020 can be found here.
