Webinar Japan – The Netherlands on Semiconductors


Webinar Japan – The Netherlands on Semiconductors
Preparation for the Innovation Mission to Japan 19-23 June
Join us in building long-term bilateral Partnerships to maintain technological leadership

Wednesday 5th of April 2023, 16:00-17:00JP / 9:00-10:00NL

The growing semiconductor industry in the Netherlands and Japan offers many opportunities for partnerships between the two like-minded countries. To speed up technological transfer we have prepared a webinar and online matchmaking session. This is a kick-off to our Innovation Mission on Semiconductors in June 2023. In this webinar we will get the conversation started between Netherlands and Japanese semiconductor companies and knowledge institutes.

The event will start with an opening by the Delegation Leader of the Innovation Mission in June, Astrid Bronswijk of the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Climate Policy, and further introduction by the Embassy in Tokyo about the Innovation Mission and other activities towards strategic bilateral partnerships in semiconductors, quantum technology and photonics. This will be followed by presentations about photonic and heterogeneous integration by prof. Yasuhiko Arakawa of the University of Tokyo, Dr. Koichi Awazu of the National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST) and Dr. Koji Yasui of Mitsubishi Electric Co.

In the registration you can indicate preference for virtual 1-on-1 meetings with Japanese companies, which we will try to facilitate on a later date in April.
