The rapid digital transition requires radical high-tech solutions to keep the global social systems running in terms of security, sustainability, economy, health and others. Important parts of these solutions lie in the area of quantum technology, photonics and nanotechnology. The Netherlands and Japan are forefront runners, both in terms of contents and in terms of industry-academia collaboration,
With the purpose to share the state of the art in both countries and to create opportunities to discuss collaboration, the Netherlands Embassy in Tokyo organizes a Netherlands-Japan Launch Event on Thursday July 8. The agenda of this Webinar includes renowned speakers from both governments, Netherlands leading organizations QuantumDelta, PhotonDelta/PITC, Dutch Optics Center and the PIB Nanotechnology Business Cluster, and Japanese leading organizations RIKEN, IOWN, Mitsubishi Electric and Keio University. We will also introduce upcoming activities in the second half of 2021 in which you can participate and get in closer contact with each other and further discuss collaboration.
