Horizon Europe and Japan

About NCP Japan

The EU-Japan Centre for Industrial Cooperation was formally appointed as National Contact Point for Horizon Programme in Japan in November 2013. Its main mission is to promote and support participation from Japanese organisations to Horizon Programme. This is achieved through seminars, lectures, help desk service and the provision of information (portal website on Horizon Europe in Japanese, reference documents in Japanese, success stories).

NCP Japan gives direct support to researchers, research organisations, and industry in Japan for their participation to Horizon Europe through:

  • Guidance on choosing relevant Horizon Europe topics and types of action
  • Advice on administrative procedures and contractual issues
  • Assistance in partner search
  • Japanese translations of key documents necessary for administrative staff of Japanese organisations

The main target of the service are researchers and industry within Japan. NCP Japan is collaborating with Enterprise Europe Network (EEN) in Japan, Euraxess Japan, and is part of several thematic NCP networks.
