EU-Japan.AI Project Research Funder Online Networking Meeting

We will be running an online networking meeting for research funding agencies in Europe and Japan on Thursday 21st April 2022. The goal of the project is to improve the cooperation between European countries and Japan relating to the development and deployment of AI for Manufacturing. As part of a wide ranging set of stakeholder engagement events, the project will be bringing together representatives of funding agencies supporting both basic and applied research to present their current portfolios of research, their current funding priorities and their mechanisms for encouraging and supporting international research collaborations.

Representatives from the Japanese applied research funders NEDO and JST as well as from European agencies such as Austria’s applied research agency FFG and Slovenia’s basic research agency ARRS are already signed up to speak. Invitations to other agencies are in progress. Agencies in other EU countries can sign up for the meeting by emailing for details. 

The meeting is intended to provide initial understanding of the goals and mechanisms of collaborative funding in other countries with respect to AI for Manufacturing, with a view to enhancing future cooperative research ranging from individual researchers being invited to join projects, up to joint calls for collaborative research proposals.
