The German Research and Innovation Forum Tokyo

The German Research and Innovation Forum Tokyo (DWIH Tokyo) acts as an umbrella for German scientific and research interests in Japan. Its aim is to present German research organisations and innovative companies in a concerted effort, thereby strengthening scientific and economic cooperation with Japanese partners.

The DWIH Tokyo is thus the central point of contact for Japanese and German research organisations, universities, and businesses or the interested public in general.

The DWIH Tokyo has been set up in 2010 on the initiative of the Federal Foreign Office of Germany and the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research.
