Currently, the Institute is engaged in extensive research on subjects such as mid-to long-term economic, industrial, social prospects of major emerging countries, political and economic trends and outlook in Europe and United States and other developed countries. It also conducts research and surveys from a global perspective on environment, energy, future mobility, corporate strategies of global enterprises and other issues which could bring about a great change in the future economic system. Also, as part of efforts to develop international mutual understanding, the Institute holds forums and seminars to which experts at home and abroad are invited and conducts the visiting fellows program to offer international scholars and researchers an opportunity to conduct research in Japan.
We hold a monthly meeting to report our research results to our member companies. Members of member companies leading their respective industries will have Q & A sessions in their respective fields and will be able to actively exchange opinions.
“Kudan+ [plas]” provides brief accounts of the selected issues and views from what our researchers have become aware of and find useful through their daily research activities.
