EU and Japan launch three joint R&I projects
The European Commission’s Directorate General for Research and Innovation has announced the launch of three joint research and innovation (R&I) projects in the area of advanced biofuels and alternative renewable fuels. The projects stem from a call supported by the EU together with the Government of Japan, represented by the Japanese Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (MEXT). The call falls under the framework of the EU-Japan Science and Technology Cooperation Agreement. The projects will start on 1 May 2021.
The three projects receive a total of €10.7 million: €9.5 million from Horizon 2020 and approximately €1.2 million from Japan’s Strategic International Collaborative Research Program (SICORP) under the Japan Science and Technology Agency.
