EU - Japan

So far, the EU and Japan have supported four joint projects, involving 29 European and Japanese institutions and over 300 student exchanges.

Cooperation in education and training between Japan and the EU began back in 2002. A few years later, in 2008, a multi-country call featuring bilateral EU-Japan cooperation projects was launched. At present, the cooperation takes the form of a number of Erasmus-like, curriculum development and student mobility projects. These involve the formation of consortia comprising at least three higher education institutions from the EU and two from Japan.

The programme is part of the Industrialised Countries Instrument Education Cooperation Programme (ICI-ECP) - Cooperation between the EU and Australia, Japan, New Zealand and South Korea in higher education and training.
