Future Plan
To think about the required innovations for the 21st century and design the future, we focus on "the measurement of innovation in medical fields" and will develop a new scenario planning method in these fields. Intellectual property is the key to measure and analyze the industries, and we combine various social scientific methods for these purposes.

Messages to Students
Innovation research in social science is an interdisciplinary research, and all the researchers are required to have multiple viewpoints and interdisciplinary knowledge. Although there are no text books in this field, we will support problem finding and solving with our experience and broad research networks. Come join us in this challenge.
