For innovations to realize their potential social value, advanced technologies and knowledge created by research institutes, such as universities, need to be deployed and widely disseminated into society. This means it is necessary to understand the method and dynamics for co-innovation between a variety of players in society. This Research Unit is primarily devoted to the investigation
into the mechanism and process of transfer/sharing of knowledge and technologies within and between organizations. This Unit also conducts practice-oriented research on co-innovation and relevant innovation dynamics to realize social values, including the strategy and management of industry-academia-government collaboration.
