Current Project

Innovation and Industrial Structure in Asia:

We analyze the relation between innovation and industrial structure in Asia in order to show an innovation system and process. Because many innovation activities in recent years straddle both the real and cyber worlds, they have major impacts on industrial structures, such as the birth of new industries, the destruction of existing industries, and the fusion of multiple industries. In addition, industrial structure also affects innovation activities through industrial diversification and the development of innovation ecosystems. Therefore, we focus on the relation between innovation and inter-industry relations.
