University students from Tokyo visit Sabin Etxea to get to know the innovation policies of EAJ-PNV
A group of 14 university students from Tokyo, studying in the ambit of innovation, visited the Bilbao headquarters of EAJ-PNV, Sabin Etxea, this week to learn about the history and policies of this party in innovation. The students, who met with Mikel Burzako, burukide of Euzkadi Buru Batzar and responsible for the Exterior Action Area, were able to know at first hand this century-old party‘s democratic functioning and firm commitment to innovation.
Learning about the business panorama and Basque innovation is the main objective of the journey, organised by the Global Innovation Department in Tokyo University, in which six female and eight male students travelled to the Basque Country to visit various social companies with their headquarters in Donostia, Bilbao and Arrasate-Mondragón. The group of young Japanese students also attended an innovation seminar held jointly with Basque students in the University of Deusto in which they studied and discussed the challenges facing the companies Euskaltel and Urbegi. Finally, they visited the Corporación Mondragón and Gernika-Lumo, as a symbol of peace. The idea of this programme is that young Japanese university students have can access to internships in Basque companies expanding in Japan.
