• Webinar: Cooperation with Japan in higher education

    Webinar: Cooperation with Japan in higher education


    Japan is the world’s third largest economy, and an important contributor to high quality research and innovation. Japan is therefore a high priority partner country for Norway, as demonstrated by the continued inclusion of Japan in Norway’s “Panorama strategy” for cooperation on higher education and research.


    What are the available schemes and programmes supporting cooperation between Norway and Japan? Which are the most important success factors or pitfalls for a long lasting and mutually beneficial cooperation? How does a Japanese university approach internationalisation, cooperation, and mobility? And how can digital cooperation formats reduce the limitations of geographical distance?


    JSPS Alumni Club in Norway and Team Norway Japan would like to invite all those interested in Japan-Norway cooperation to a webinar focussing on these and other questions.

    This event is finished.  Please contact tokyo@innovationnorway.no for any inquiries.
