Robot-Era Project Manager Filippo Cavallo is one of the speakers at Japan–EU Policy Forum on Silver ICT

The issues on ageing society are already a top priority on the national agendas of Japan and the EU. ICT-based innovation can play a key role in addressing this challenge and help to create major opportunities for citizens and industry.
EU-Japan cooperation can bring major advantages and essential contributions for the solution of global ageing issues. Both Japan and EU can learn the lessons from the best practices in each experience. The concrete actions on short and medium term will be prepared as recommendations linked for Japan-EU ICT policy exchange to materialise the mutual benefits of cooperation.
In terms of cooperation Japan and the EU share many of the same challenges to be addressed by policy and by R&D in the ICT field (Internet governance, Internet security, ageing population, etc). The EU-Japan ICT regulatory Dialogue's 20th meeting will be held on 4th December in Brussels, and this workshop is being held in that context, with the conclusions being fed into the Dialogue itself. The Dialogue, which is generally held annually, is a government-to-government meeting, and is co-chaired at Vice Ministerial level. It covers a wide range of ICT subjects of mutual interest or concern in the areas of policy exchange, regulatory discussion, and technology research cooperation.
