EU-Japan - World Class Manufacturing

Financial assistance is available to help EU companies acquire a better understanding of certain manufacturing methods in Japan.


To facilitate small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) participation in the course, participants from SMEs can apply for a scholarship of €600 towards their living expenses.

They must complete the 'scholarship request – self-assessment declaration' form that will be sent to them once the EU-Japan Centre has offered a place on the course.

Participants' companies must pay a (refundable) deposit of €1,000 to guarantee the place on the course. The deposit will be refunded within 8 weeks after the course, provided that the participant attends the entire course and submits any and all reports the Centre asks him/her to make.

Other companies

Participants' companies must pay a (non-refundable) contribution of €2,000 towards the costs incurred by the EU-Japan Centre in relation to the company's participation.
