October 30, 2017

At the 32nd Annual Academic Conference of the Japan Society for Research Policy and Innovation, held in Kyoto on October 28 and 29, 2017, NEDO received the Japan Society for Research Policy and Innovation Management Award.

Since FY 2015, NEDO has been working on a project to provide data about the results of follow-up monitoring of NEDO projects to researchers in Japan, in order to encourage the development of science, technology and innovation research, which was regarded as the reason for this award. This was NEDO's second award, following the award received at the 24th Annual Academic Conference in October 2009, affirming its reputation as an independent administrative agency making serious efforts to improve the process of technology assessment.

At the symposium, NEDO Executive Director Masayoshi Watanabe participated in a panel discussion titled "Innovation Based on Collaboration among Industry, Government and Academia: Revolutionary and Unconventional Innovation." He provided a presentation titled "Integration of Various Kinds of Technology: The Importance of Coordination and Cooperation." In addition, nine NEDO staff members presented project management results, as well as engaging in extensive discussions with the attendees.
