Environmental Technologies in Japan

2011-10-06

The 26th Stockholm Seminar on Japan  

Japan is committed to contribute to the global battle against climate change. Environmental technologies have emerged as a key element in the country's ecological strategy and its commercialization could play a significant economic and job creation role. What are the policies laying the foundations for a Green Japan? How do Japan plan to mobilize business, local governments and the population to adopt new and emerging technologies?

Carin Holroyd is Associate Professor of Political Science at the University of Waterloo.  She has lived and taught in Japan. She is currently working on a larger study of the emergence of Green Japan and a comparative examination of national innovation policies.

Date and Time:  October 6, Thursday, 15:00-16:30
Venue: Ohlinrummet, 5th floor, Stockholm School of Economics, Sveavägen 65
  
Registration:  nanhee.lee@hhs.se by October 3

The seminar series is jointly organized by the European Institute of Japanese Studies at Stockholm School of Economics, the East Asia Program at the Swedish Institute of International Affairs and the Department of Japanese Studies at Stockholm University. 
It features monthly seminars on Japanese economy, politics and society.

Welcome!
