About the Global Innovation Center

GIC consists of the Advanced Project Division, KOINE Project Division, Visitors Division, and the Joint Research Division, as shown in the table below. Each division features and promotes a novel type of industry-academia-government collaboration based on the KOINE concept.

The Advanced Project Division promotes joint research in collaboration with the private sector and will focus on basic research to create industrial seeds for the next generation of industry. Furthermore, the Advanced Project Division aims to develop basic to large-scale research projects that will contribute to the creation of new industries. This division is leveraged to promote global industry-academia-government collaboration based on the principles of open innovation.

The KOINE Project Division promotes creation of new research platforms based on industry-academia-government collaboration and Kyushu University’s unique open innovation initiative. This division aims to create “new value” based on shared recognition of new research fields and new industries brought forth through discussions among people of various backgrounds from inside and outside of Kyushu University.

The Visitors Division invites researchers from industry as visiting professors who will support GIC initiatives.

The Joint Research Division has established a hub (Industry-University Collaboration Research Project) for joint research projects between Kyushu University and private organizations in specific fields.
