About KOINE

KOINE is the abbreviation of Kyudai global Open Innovation Network Engine but is also an English word originated from ancient Greek to represent common language and common understanding.
KOINE indicates the framework of collaborative idea creation based on open innovation scheme by Kyushu University.
KOINE provides opportunities for its members to discuss complex problems in research, business, and society from many viewpoints of members with different backgrounds and disciplines. Eventually discussion forms the common basis for tackling such problems for everyone and could bring unexpected idea and means for solving problems.

01 KOINE meetings provide the opportunities for solving industrial/social problems.

Feel freely to bring your industrial/social problem and patents not to serve any purpose to the KOINE office. We will consult you and if it is fundamental and necessary to discuss with many others, KOINE meeting in a specific research platform will be set up.
KOINE meetings are held once a month and you can join when you sign the non-discloser agreement which claim you to manage disclosed information in your organization by yourself.
