Report: Cluster Mapping in Japan 2016

About the Report

Following a first mapping attempt in 2013, the EU-Japan Centre proceeded, in 2016, with a new screening online in order to identify new clusters and better assess already existing ones identified in 2013. 
Hence, this report suggests that Japan benefits from an important cluster community (at least 52 cluster organisations in 2016), mostly operating in Pharmaceuticals, Biotechnology, Healthcare, Medical and Welfare sectors (28/52), and in other sectors, such as Electronics, Environment, ICT, Automotive and Aerospace.

New reports released in August 2016
