I believe that continuous innovation is the lifeline of an R&D-oriented company. In particular, I would like to gain new insights into the success factors of open innovation, which is a co-creative activity between firms, from a knowledge-based viewpoint. We are therefore examining the characteristics of the flow of innovation seeds, technologies, etc., using network analysis and other methods.
