This symposium is co-organized by the Japanese-German Center Berlin (JDZB) and FFJ. It is the first symposium of the series "French-German Dialogue on Japan", a joint initiative by JDZB and FFJ.
Autonomous driving has become a relevant and broadly discussed topic in Japan as well as France and Germany. However, political and corporate strategies on how to implement autonomous driving, regulatory policies in both national, and, in the cases of Germany and France, EU levels, and attitudes towards autonomous driving as well as the perception of risks and chances in each society might differ to a large extent. The French-German Dialogue on Japan will discuss this topic by bringing together trilateral perspectives, research findings, and hands-on experience by panelists from academia and business.
