Methods of quantitative evaluation and searching for industry-academia and inter-corporate alliances in research and development


When considering starting a new business, there is a lack of information on that industry, and huge amounts of time, effort and money are required in choosing companies of other industries to partner with in carrying out research and development and launching products onto the market.
For example, in NEDO projects and the establishment of the consortium, companies of different industries often collaborate revolving around university staff, and it can be said that these university staff are playing the role of coordinators who bring together different fields and develop them.


We can analyze the influence inter-corporate collaboration has on the boosting of research and development capabilities using object data such as those taken from patents or academic papers.
Using the results of analyses to select the coordinator that is most suitable for the issue at hand leads to the potential to establish a network among companies of different industries with the minimal amount of time, effort and money by making use of the coordinator’s network.


It is also possible to use the same method to analyze operations targeting in-house technology.


Using a method of implementing objective data enables the calculation of “the degree of influence” leading to the greater possibility of finding a suitable coordinator.
