EBC Newsletter – December 8, 2021


From the EBC

Dear Friends of the EBC,

At the beginning of December, the EBC has moved to a new location in Toranomon. After changing its Constitution and its management in January 2020, after developing its communication strategy, it is a new step toward a more efficient and dynamic EBC. If you have time to visit us, you will be most welcome!

At our last Board Meeting, Michael Mroczek was re-elected President of the Board for 2 more years. His main priorities for the coming months will be a continuous strengthening of the EBC’s exposure and the enhancement of the EBC Committees’ work.

If you are interested in Space and Innovation, the EU-Japan Centre and EURAXESS Japan are organizing a webinar focusing on Challenges, and Opportunities in the Space Sector.

We wish you a good reading and hope you stay positive and healthy during this difficult time.
