What do I need to know about the Japanese biotechnology market and biotechnology clusters?

The Japanese government recognizes that biotechnology is an important driver of economic growth, which is reflected in both the national and regional government supported domestic biotechnology-related initiatives and their global development.  One of the initiatives supporting this policy are the biotech clusters, with each cluster having its own characteristics and focus sector.  For EU biotechnology companies considering to expand their business in Japan, an understanding of the biotech cluster is crucial for a smooth market entry.

This webinar is targeted at EU biotechnology companies seeking to enter the Japanese market and wishing to participate in existing biotech clusters.
