<Jean Monnet Chair> "Online Visit” to the Delegation of the European Union to Japan *Closed

As one of the Jean Monnet Chair(a European Union (EU) education funding programme) activities, we offer students an opportunity to visit the Delegation of the European Union to Japan to learn more about the EU-Japan relationship and various activities of the EU. This year we will do the visit online due to the impact of COVID-19. Officials of the Delegation will give us talk about the EU's relationship with Japan in terms of economics and trade, challenges such as COVID-19 crisis and environmental policy that the EU faces, and international cooperation including the acceptance of immigrants and refugees. There will also be time for a presentation on the Erasmus+, EU's programme supporting students from EU and partner countries across the world to study in Europe.  The presentations will be followed by a Q & A session.  
Those interested in the EU, its member states and studying in Europe are welcome to join this event. Registration is required. First-come, first-served basis.
