Bruegel has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with Japanese think tank the National Institute for Research Advancement (NIRA), to further cooperation and collaboration between Asian and European economists.

The Memorandum, signed 4 September 2012 by Bruegel director Jean Pisani-Ferry and Motoshige Itoh, President of NIRA, establishes a sustainable visiting fellowship programme. The programme will enable a NIRA Visiting Fellow to temporarily stay at Bruegel to conduct research work, interact with Bruegel’s scholars and bring insights to its members and audience. The Visiting Fellow will be encouraged to engage in research projects with the Bruegel fellows, submit papers for publication in Bruegel series, and will be subject to the provisions of Bruegel’s statement of research integrity and non-partisanship. The first Visiting Fellow will come to Bruegel in April 2013 for a period of three to five months.

Bruegel director Jean Pisani-Ferry said, "Since its inception, Bruegel has sought to develop contacts in Asia and to collaborate with Asian economists, and has led a number of initiatives to diversify and consolidate the linkage between Asian and European economists and practitioners. Asia’s global economic importance has again been highlighted by recent developments. Bruegel now wants to consolidate its leadership in this area and become a globally recognised hub for Asia-Europe economic discussions and exchanges."

The Bruegel-NIRA Europe-Asia hub will be located in Brussels and will provide expertise to policymakers, corporations and media on Asia and the Asia-Europe relationship in the global context.
