Professor Elaine Fahey, Dr Luke McDonagh, Dr Enrico Bonadio, Professor David Collins and Anthony Rogers were awarded funding for their Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC)-funded project from 2019, titled, TRILATTRADE: UK-EU-Japan Trade Relations: Modelling Trade, Regulation and IP. 

TRILATTRADE is a research project hosted at City Law School since 2019 which examines three thematic strands in UK-EU-Japan relations going forward: overall economic law; regulation theory and data transfers; and intellectual property (IP) law and policy. 

The ESRC-funded Funding International Challenges (FIC) TRILATTRADE research project seeks to model the legal framework of the trilateral UK-EU-Japan Trade, Regulation and IP relationship.

Trade, regulation and IP constitute three core pillars of international, national and regional economic law and policy frameworks. This is relevant to the functional operation of trade and its innovation.

Business opportunities

The project addresses these core pillars with three interlocking thematic strands: 1. UK-Japan Trade; 2. UK-EU-Japan Regulatory Cooperation and Data Flows; and 3. UK-EU-Japan Intellectual Property. 

The project aims to generate trade and business opportunities as well as models for good global governance in law and policy as a future research agenda.

On 18 September 2019, the City Law School organized a kick-off conference in London for the ESRC-funded ‘TRILATRADE’ project with partner Keio Law School, Tokyo, Japan.

A Networking event on UK-EU-Japan business and legal relations was held at Cass Business School at Aldersgate on 16 September (sponsored by Atsumi and Saki partners, London). 

On Tuesday 17 September (FG05 Innovation Centre Whiskin Street) there were Public Short Law talks with Dr Kazuhiro Ando, Toyo University, IP Law and the Music Industry in Japan; Akira Shimazaki, Atsumi & Sakai commercial law, contract law and arbitration. A Doctoral seminar on EU-Japan relations and Asia in context (funded by the EUTIP H2020 MSCA-ITN project) also took place on this day.
