Japan-Netherlands Collaboration on Critical Infrastructure Protection

Since 2016, in the lead up to the Olympic Games, Japanese and Dutch organisations have collaborated in developing solutions for the protection of (critical) infrastructures. Through sharing best-practices, the collaboration between Japan and the Netherlands has resulted in numerous partnerships between businesses, governments and knowledge institutions from both countries.
