Commissioner Moedas and Minister Hirai said:
The EU is preparing to launch its new research and innovation programme, Horizon Europe. The new Japanese Moonshot Research & Development Programme, at the same time, promotes R&D for disruptive innovation and targets solutions to ambitious social and economic challenges. With the introduction of these new programmes on both sides, we expect EU-Japan cooperation in science, technology and innovation to increase in areas of mutual interest, in line with last year’s EU-Japan Strategic Partnership Agreement.
As part of the 26th EU-Japan Summit on 25 April, both sides committed to extending the co-funding of joint projects and welcomed the new arrangement to provide opportunities for collaboration between researchers from the European Research Council and Japan Science and Technology Agency.
