Research Administrators

■ Research Administrators ■ Full-time faculty members of the Institute of Innovation Research   ■ Visiting Professor   Dr. Endo Akira   IIR invited Dr. Endo Akira to join the faculty as a visiting professor in November 2009. Dr. Endo was a pioneer in the discovery and development of a series of new drug groups called statins, which are being taken by over 30 million people around the world each day as an effective medication for dyslipidemia (high blood cholesterol levels), one of the causes of arteriosclerosis and heart disease. For his work, Dr. Endo was awarded The Lasker Medical Research Award, a highly prestigious international honor, in 2008. As…

Implementation System

■ Implementation system ■ As a center for cooperation, conduct joint research to achieve synergy with both government agencies and the industrial sector. ■ Form a global research network with overseas universities and international organizations that are at the forefront of global innovation research, and engage in research on innovation that sets a global innovation research standard. ■ Conduct joint research with government agencies and industries, using an approach that achieves synergy with both sectors, by positioning IIR as a center for cooperation. ■ Enable young researchers to participate in case studies and other research endeavors, and cultivate human resource through hands-on research training. ■ Research the innovation process based on industry-academia-government collaboration. To achieve…

Research Areas and Projects

Research Areas and Projects ■ Research areas IIR has entered into agreements and memoranda concerning joint research with collaborating institutions, including the industrial sector and government agencies, to create a framework for research cooperation (see “Implementation System”), and is conducting research in the following areas for each project. (1)Measurement of innovation processes Gathering or developing original data to understand and analyze the mechanisms of knowledge fusion and knowledge creation, the realities of knowledge commercialization processes and other innovation processes. (2) Technology management Research on optimal approaches to technology management that will efficiently link research and development results to innovations, as a country or industrial sector as a whole. (3) Policies…

Background and purpose

■ Background and purpose Innovation holds the key to Japan’s future economic growth. The process of innovation is highly complex, and accompanied by a social division of labor. To clarify measures that will effectively promote innovation in both the creation and application of knowledge, there is a need for systematic research into every process of innovation, from the accumulation of objective data and creation of ideas based on such data to their use. This research endeavor is pursuing research on innovation processes, including the mechanisms of knowledge creation and paths toward competition and cooperation in R&D, based on industry-academia-government collaboration (personnel exchanges, sharing of data and sharing of costs). Together…

Program Overview

Program Overview The Institute of Innovation Research (IIR) initiated its Industry-Academia-Government Collaboration Research Program on Innovation Processes in FY2008, with support from the central government. ■ Background and purpose   Innovation holds the key to Japan’s future economic growth.
