The EU-Japan Centre for Industrial Cooperation launches the "EU-Japan Technology Transfer Helpdesk", a new service aimed at supporting EU and Japanese research and innovation organizations, companies and individuals in their steps to search for technologies and understand the mechanics of tech transfer transactions, as well as bridging the knowledge gap about current available technologies from both Japan and the EU.
The service, operational from February 2016, is supported by a web portal http://www.eu-jp-tthelpdesk.eu which provides general content about intellectual property rights, technology transfer, and related topics between the EU and Japan.
Webinars, videos, and presentations are intended to make this new service a must-see for implementing open innovation practices within EU and Japanese companies.
The service is dedicated to:
• European companies (with particular attention to SMEs), universities, and research institutions;
• Japanese companies (with particular attention to SMEs), universities, and research institutions;
• Japanese and European individuals working for the above entities.
The Helpdesk is actively seeking for technologies from EU and Japanese universities and research centers to be freely displayed on the portal. For all those eligible and interested, please visit the webste: http://www.eu-jp-tthelpdesk.eu.
