Some projects/research I was involved in:

* African Clean Cities Platform (ACCP)

Minerva Visiting Fellow

EU-Japan Centre for Industrial Cooperation

April 2015 - September 2015

I undertook research activities on the following selected topic: "Recycling and waste management industry and market in Japan - Opportunities for European Companies (SMEs focus)"

The research resulted in a comprehensive Report containing policy conclusions and recommendations, and the results were presented at a public presentation.

In addition, I contributed to the policy analysis activities of the Centre, including i.a. the constant monitoring of Japanese and foreign media, as well as web pages of the corporate entities from my sector to search for relevant news (policy trends, legislation/regulatory changes, industrial events, institutional changes) related to my areas of research. Relevant policy/industrial/business news from Japan related to my field and with potential impact for EU-Japan trade and industrial relations, or to the EU investors in Japan, were submitted to the Centre's direction and if appropriate transmitted to the Centre’s stakeholders (European Commission, Member States etc.) in the form of brief notes.
