Seminar and tour will be held in English.


Topic: “Level playing field: Are Japanese and German technology companies exploiting their reciprocal strength? – An industry’s perspective”


Robotics, Industry 4.0 and digitalisation are well discussed topics across sectors. In an increasingly globalised and industrialised world, it could be expected that the exchange of innovation, technology, research and knowledge should rise as well. Nevertheless, even though Japan and Germany, as leading nations contributing to above processes, share similar challenges and common economic strengths, bilateral trade, interchange of research and knowledge as well as innovation between both economies and their tech-companies are rather nominal.

Are both nations missing out chances through the lack of technology interchange? Would a free trade agreement ease cooperation and commerce? How could common potentials be exploited and reciprocal strengths be joined? Our speaker will share his experience and expert knowledge out of an industry’s perspective.
