Creativity, Dynamic Design, Design Process, Relationship Design and Management, Social Innovation
Outline Activities
[Social Innovation Design Lab]
Our current research interests are in following areas (but not limited to);
-Studies to elucidate a dynamic mechanism of human relationships which structure a society, focusing on human behavior and design process.
For the purpose above;
-Studies to capture and visualize human factors dynamically and quantitatively. Engineering approach is especially welcomed.
Based on the knowledge obtained from the studies above;
-Studies to develop methodologies to design and manage human/organizational relationships for well-being (incl. industrial relationships)
For the purpose above (our ultimate aim is to contribute to well-being society, though),
-We conduct a lot of practical design projects focusing on human relationships and have unique opportunities and research circumstances for them.
