The German Centre for Research and Innovation Tokyo (DWIH Tokyo) is a platform for German universities, research institutions and researchbased companies in Japan.

It represents and promotes Germany as a location for science, research and innovation. It supports knowledge exchange between Germany and Japan, and communicates with relevant stakeholders in both countries, thereby creating the preconditions for research cooperation. In doing so, it relies on its research-based supporters in Germany who facilitate and shape the work of DWIH Tokyo on the ground.

DWIH Tokyo is part of a global network of five German Centres for Research and Innovation. Since its establishment in 2010, it has been supported by the German Federal Foreign Office. It has been coordinated by the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) since 2017.
