Research Workshop on Innovation Process



Day: March 18th 2013, Time: 9:30 to 18:30
Venue:Hitotsubashi University, East Campus (Conference room, the third floor of Faculty Building 3)

This research workshop on innovation process invites the researchers who have participated in the program of “University-industry-government collaborative research on innovation process” to present their findings from completed or ongoing research projects. The research projects cover the research on knowledge production in science, the research on NEDO consortiums, and the research on university and industry collaborative research. The researches have been supported from the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science (JSPS): Grant-in-Aid for Scientific Research (S) (No. 20223002) and Grant-in-Aid for Scientific Research (A) (No. 21243020)
