Jointly Organized by Hitotsubashi University (Institute of Innovation Research), NISTEP (National Institute of Science and Technology Policy) and RIETI (Research Institute of Economy, Trade and Industry)

Objective:
This research workshop focuses on the process of science based innovation as well as policies for promoting the synergy between the two. It invites a leading scholar on Innovation Economics, Professor Adam Jaffe, who is also currently the head of the Motu Economic and Public Policy Research. This research workshop first invites Dr. Jaffe to deliver a keynote speech on the “Capitalizing science for innovations: policy issues and research agenda” (provisional) in the morning session. In the afternoon, there will be two sessions presenting the outcomes of three ongoing collaborative research projects on innovation process at Hitotsubashi University, NISTEP and RIETI: (1) Science sources of industrial innovations: evidence from corporate inventions and drugs launched in Japan, (2) Bridging science to innovations (evidence from science projects, and university and industry co-inventions). The presentations will be followed by discussions by academic scholars and policy makers, for identifying the potential policy lessons and the remaining research agenda.

Topic:
“From a Lean to a Rich View of Innovation: Case Evidence from
the Emergence of Mobile Health”

'The concept of innovation tends to be used to describe advances in
technology and service concepts. For example, Christensen (1997) has
made an argument of ‘disruptive innovation’, in which he has claimed
that the primary factor to explain change from existing technical
arrangements to new solutions is in product features. I argue that this
is a lean view of innovation, and I make a case for a richer view, which
I draw from my research on the emergence of mobile health. The last few
years have seen increasing public talk of mobile technology use in
health care in many Western countries. A closer look reveals that there
have been efforts to improve cost and health outcome efficiencies by use
of mobile devices for about two decades. I discuss the organisational
efforts and challenges in the emergence of mobile health, in England and
Finland, and use this evidence to make an argument about a rich view of
innovation.'
