Netherlands-Japan Roadshow
Opportunities for Collaboration

Dear Esteemed Contact,

Thank you for joining the Netherlands-Japan Roadshow Innovation in Semiconductors, on Tuesday 25 October 2022, 14:00-18:00 at Hotel Okura in Tokyo.

Semiconductor technology is at the heart of innovative and digital developments in virtually every sector. It is therefore a key industry to bring about the digital and green transition. The Netherlands and Japan are indispensable to achieving these transitions, as they are two of only three countries active throughout the whole semiconductor value chain. Dutch and Japanese government strongly support efforts to further promote their position within the value chain and see the strengthening of their relations as an important part of this. Semiconductor players in Netherlands can be positioned as Japanese partners to realize Japan Semiconductor strategy, especially in the field of 3D device process development.

In this light, the Netherlands Embassy in Japan organized a NL Semiconductor Roadshow on 25 October. During the event professionals from government, research institutes, and industry discussed NL semiconductor and high-tech policy and position the NL semiconductor ecosystem in Japan. The goals are:

  • Make the large and complex semiconductor ecosystems in both countries more accessible for each other,
  • Stimulate technology transfer and industry-research collaboration between the Netherlands and Japan,
  • Connect and commit to bilateral follow-up activities, including future oriented human capital.

The Roadshow was opened by Ambassador Peter van der Vliet. After updates on recent policies in by the Netherlands Ministry of Economic Affairs and Climate Policy (EZK) of the Netherlands and the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI) of Japan, branch organization Holland Semiconductors introduced the Netherlands ecosystem, existing of about 200 companies and institutes. This was followed by innovative presentations by Dutch companies that have representation in Japan, including ASMi, TNO, CICT, Demcon, Boschman, Prodrive, Fastmicro, Tempress and Nearfield Instruments. Between the presentations and during the reception at the end, there was amply possibilities to do Networking and further personal discussions. All presenters had panels and posters at the venue for further explanation.
