Japamburg is a non-profit German-Japanese network founded in 2021 and based in Hamburg. The community aims at linking business representatives in Hamburg, Germany and Japan even more closely via regular event formats covering innovation topics of German-Japanese interest. Since 2023, Japamburg is organized within DJW as working group creating deepening synergies between our two organizations.

With the premiere of our even closer cooperation between Japamburg and DJW, we are very pleased to invite you to the first network meeting "Japamburg within DJW"! As hosts we could win Olympus, with whom we will lay the foundation for a wide-reaching visibility for this and future Japamburg events. The success story of Olympus, a Japanese investment in Hamburg, is written by innovations especially in the field of medical technology, science and industry. Topics such as the new forms of intercultural collaboration and 'New Work' also provided the company with opportunities for creativity, employer branding and talent development. On September 20, we will dive into insights on how 'New Work' is shaped by Olympus' management and team.
