OSINTech Inc.(Kobe, Hyogo, Japan, CEO: Masato Oda) and Intelligence Watch (Malmö, Sweden, Chief and founder: Anders Olshov), a think tank, have formed a business alliance to jointly make policy recommendations to both countries on the theme of sustainability.

We had an event for Japanese press on the 28th of March, 2023.

There will be a media event for Nordic and European press on the 26th of April, 2023.

Contact us for the detail:

OSINTech Inc., a provider of "RuleWatcher," a cloud service that enables users to track international rule trends, has formed a business alliance with Swedish think tank, Intelligence Watch.

Intelligence Watch is an independent (non-profit organization) think tank in Sweden that has made numerous policy recommendations on sustainability. It is known for its unique presentation style, "open to criticism and open to making it public".

Intelligence Watch, which has the open and democratic publication style of reports, which is really Swedish(the fourth largest democracy index in the world in 2022) in a way, published a report in 2019, and that was used as the basis for its own Japan House project to promote cultural and business exchange with Japan in the Skåne region of southern Sweden. Currently, the Japan House Project is in the process of planning and conducting site visits to deepen relations with Japan in order to realize this goal.

Intelligence Watch has now published a follow-up report, "Scandinavia's Sustainable Tech Banana beckons Japan". Here, we unpack the cultural and geopolitical affinities between Scandinavia and Japan, and discuss the business potential that can be realized between Japan and the Nordic city cluster selected by the EU as one of its "100 Climate Neutral Cities.

Meanwhile, Tankyu Intelligence Center, an education and research brand launched last year by OSINTech Inc., has released a policy recommendation report that serves as a response to the call from the Nordics to Japan. In "Spiraling Development with Japan - Manufacturing Technology Becomes Remanufacturing Technology in the Nordic Countries," written using the intelligence platform RuleWatcher, it is pointed out that the contribution to the circular economy in the Nordic countries can be made by utilizing Japan's fundamental ability to draw out the value cycle of manufactured goods.

Both policy recommendation reports can be downloaded from

English ver. will be published on the same day as the press event holds, April 26th, 2023.

These reports are a pair of policy recommendations that promote collaboration among Nordic cities, which are also model cities for climate neutrality, to utilize Japanese technology, and Japan can also learn social innovation from the Nordic countries.

These reports are designed to be read by the general public, and we welcome comments and suggestions, We hope that these reports, aiming at the ideal shape of democracy by Intelligence Watch and including tips that OSINTech intends as a social think tank, will serve as a catalyst for a model in which both regions lead the way in sustainability in a global scope.
