Collaboration with the University of Nagaoka.

For Basque companies that want to open up the market in Japan, it can be an opportunity to train a person to use to continue collaborating with opening up the market on their return to Japan. Additionally, in order to expand this collaboration, there is also a line of communication to enhance the connection between Basque and Japanese companies in the university domain, coordinated by Saiolan in the Basque Country.
