New Value through Co-creation
We have been approaching the creation of new value while exploring advanced technologies and collaborative partners with the active use of global technology hubs and three facilities for co-creation activities. We are aiming at creating attractive value and well-suited solution by painting the picture of a desired future with design thinking & art thinking, which we have incorporated through the collaboration with universities including Tohoku University of Art & Design.
IHI Tsunagu Lab (IHI innovation hub)
IHI Tsunagu Lab was established as a hub to foster open innovation for the IHI Group. At this lab with the exhibition of our various technologies and products, we are approaching the cultivation of co-creation partners through interactive dialogs and shared understandings of mutual subjects.
i-Base in IHI Group Yokohama Labs
With the use of ‘Ignition Base (commonly called as i-Base),’ we are aiming at early commercialization of new ideas. In the process of co-creation based on design thinking & art thinking, we utilize ‘GARAGE’ equipped for prompt prototyping and ‘project booths’ for intensive discussion with partners.
IHI Launch Pad
IHI Launch Pad was established as a business incubation hub in Silicon Valley. At this hub, we are accelerating new business creation of the IHI Group with the collaboration with the ecosystem, such as investors and start-up companies, in North America.
