EU Gateway | Business Avenues will take selected European companies to Chiba City in Japan from 27 November to 1 December 2017, for a market scoping mission in the Railway Technologies & Services  sector.
Japan is a dynamic and quality focused market that is one of the leading Railway technology and services producers in the world. In this context, up to 40 European companies will be supported by the EU and have their products or technology promoted in Japan. They will also benefit from pre-arranged face to face business meetings and exhibit at the Mass – Trans Innovation  Trade Fair in Chiba (Tokyo Metropolitan area).
The market scoping mission will include: targeted coaching during the application process, business practices and sector specific coaching at the pre-departure stage, on site coaching during the mission itself and post mission coaching when European companies participating return to Europe. A series of standard services, financed by the EU, will also be provided to ensure that the participating European companies can make the most of their time in Japan. All participants will be featured in a comprehensive promotional campaign run in Japan, and a range of customised services is also available and co-financed by the EU.
