Session 1: Deepening Russia-Japan cooperation in science, technology and innovation
Russia and Japan have long history of scientific and technological cooperation. The two countries have common pressing problems that may be solved through scientific research and technological advancement. The Russian and Japanese scientific-technological complexes are rather different, but this gives the opportunity for complementarity and fruitful cooperation for mutual benefit.

At the governmental level Russia and Japan work since 2000 under the agreement between the Government of the Russian Federation and the Government of Japan on Scientific and Technical Cooperation, which defines priority areas of such cooperation. Both countries share history of joint participation in a number of big international projects. Russian and Japanese government agencies, including science foundations, develop and implement various cooperation schemes; scientific and technological partnerships are also taking place at the university level. Overall instruments used for cooperation are diverse and policy mix is widening. Science organizations as well as universities cooperate within such schemes as joint research projects, mirror laboratories, and scientific mega-projects.

COVID19 brought new forms of scientific interaction and cooperation, such as online planforms and virtual cooperative schemes. Japan and Russia may discuss how the new schemes may be applied in different contexts – i.e. research cooperation and industrial development.

Discussions are expected to cover a broad range of topics from human resource development to research and industrial cooperation, so that Russia and Japan may strengthen initiatives by collaborating in science, technology, and innovation.

Topics to be discussed:
Our two countries' strength and mutual complementarities
Current initiatives and measures for success
Science education and interaction among universities, development of online forms of education
Network-based cooperation in large international projects, online platforms for sharing data and other instruments after COVID-19
Mechanisms to support joint projects for technology development
Best practices and factors for success
How to take the best advantage of this opportunity of the Russia-Japan Workshop to deepen the Russia-Japan Cooperation in science, technology and innovation

Session 2: Focusing on societal needs for science, technology and innovation in Russia and Japan
This session will discuss how Russia and Japan can cooperate to create a healthy, eco‐friendly society by means of technological, innovative development.

A special attention will be given to the potential of expanding cooperation between large Japanese companies and Russian small and medium‐sized enterprises. The two countries have complementary strengths in these areas. The new trend in Russia is the growing number of medium‐sized fast developing high tech companies. One of the main directions for development of such companies is to get broad awareness and worldwide investment on their scientific and technological capabilities. At the same time, Russia is lacking big technological companies that would pour more resources in scientific‐technological development. In Japan big companies invest actively resources into R&D, and they may be interested in expanding cooperation with Russian small and medium enterprises.

Topics to be discussed:
The high expectation for science, technology and innovation in social needs and the increasing of the importance of cooperation between Russia and Japan after COVID‐19
Economic context for cooperation aimed at technological advancement
Benefits of industrial cooperation for the two countries
Infrastructure for industrial innovation, including new digital forms
Examples of success and transformation in the two countries
14:40–14:50 MOSCOW / 20:40–20:50 TOKYO
