This event will provide the opportunity to invited participants from Japan and Europe to familiarize themselves with recent research interests and consider collaboration prospects that will arise in the context of the Horizon Europe framework program or relevant initiatives from JST. The programme includes keynote talks from Takayuki Ito (Kyoto University), "An Agent that Facilitates Crowd Discussion", and from Fabio Martinelli (Research Director, CNR IIT) "Data usage control for data sovereignty".

ERCIM Start-Up Support Program for the EU

Photo by Campaign Creators on UnsplashStart-up companies in the areas of mathematics and computer science often are not bound to national borders. Especially in current times, where virtual meetings occur abundantly, this becomes even more emphasized: many start-up companies like to explore their possibilities abroad. When considering other countries, they often face several challenges. Such challenges usually concern getting to know local customers, actors, practices, or laws; or the need for local (low-budget) office space and funds.

Partners in ERCIM like to offer help for start-ups, especially those related to mathematics and informatics (ICT), to expand their businesses in other countries than their own. Several ERCIM partners thus like to cooperate with each other, in order to help out start-ups for this matter. The participating ERCIM institutes may differ in the kind of support they offer, and in whether they provide support themselves or refer start-ups to the appropriate help somewhere else.
