The launch of Public Meets Innovation, an incorporated body that the government officials and IT startup entrepreneurs from the Millennial generation explore policies specific to innovation development
Public Meets Innovation (located at Chiyoda-ku, Tokyo) is a Public policy institute for the next generation leaders, where innovators from startups, research, and educational institutions collaborate to formulate policies specialized for innovation established by the government officials , politicians, lawyers etc. who are mainly from the Millennial generation.
As new industries in technology such as artificial intelligence (AI) and blockchain are progressing rapidly on a global scale in recent years, the importance of legal system improvement for innovation is increasing.
On the other hand, the environmental maintenance to propel the Japanese innovation policy is late worldwide. (* 1)
We believe the main reasons are the following.
▶︎Missing the mutual point of contact between the public sectors and innovators from the younger generation
▶︎Lack of opportunities for accessing information of political / policy contacts for innovators.
▶︎The voices of innovators from younger are hard to reach in the policy process.
▶︎The opportunity of contact between national public servants who are responsible for policymaking and start-up companies, technicians of human resources who are in the public sectors are insufficient, and the knowledge of innovation area is limited.
▶︎Lack of Tri-sector human resources with working experience in both the public and private sectors.
We cooperate with public sectors such as national civil servants, politicians, lawyers, etc. mainly from the Millennial generation who will be responsible for the future society, startups and innovators of research and educational institutions, and we will frame the policies through the community to think about how social innovation can give function and implement in society to tackle the social issues in Japan and will spread out to the world. Also as a generation living in the era of the assumption that the existing customs and common sense is going to be lost by the technology, granted to the proposal after 10 years, 50 years, social implementation of innovation will aim to build eco-system that will become a commonplace.
