Background and Objectives

The JEUPISTE project, (Japan-Europe Partnership in Innovation, Science and Technology, is a 3-year EU funded project under the 7th Framework for Research, Technological Development and Demonstration of the European Commission.
Its aim is to advance the Europe-Japan cooperation in Science, Technology and Innovation. Academic workshops are one the activities of the JEUPISTE project and are dedicated to networking/twinning within research communities.

Nanomaterials: A strategic priority

Research and innovation in advanced materials is set as a priority by the 3rd Joint Committee on Scientific and Technological Cooperation between the EU and Japan as of May 2015.

Nanomaterials and bionanoscience are challenging areas where Europe and Japan can work together and develop common solutions, in particular in relation to characterisation, hazard assessment and medical applications.

The workshop

This workshop aims to enable networking and creation of partnerships for projects under Horizon 2020 and related bi-multi lateral programmes that can facilitate EU-Japan cooperation. This event will highlight the current state of research in Europe and Japan on nanomaterials and bionanoscience and features on-going research in this field with potential significance for Europe-Japan cooperation.

The benefit of cooperation between Europe and Japan on this area is directly related to cooperation in the field nanotechnologies for high-added value products, process industries, modelling, healthcare and energy applications. Especially cooperation under Horizon 2020, activities will focus on process technologies and management of resources based on high performance nanotechnologies and advanced materials science with the aim of making processes "smarter", "cleaner" and "intelligent", contributing to the Circular Economy.

This workshop is organised as parallel event of NANOTEXNOLOGY 2016.
