Recovering from Success

Among the most prominent policy attempts to reshape Japan's innovation system has been moves to create an environment conducive to basic research and breakthrough innovations. This chapter reminds us that this is not simply a matter of strengthening university research and forging closer links between universities and industry, but requires universities to address a broad range of skill needs, particularly in professional fields like law and management, which individual companies can no longer address on their own. It is shown that social issues must also be addressed, including greater efforts to promote public understanding of and support for science and technology. This requires directing science and technology and innovation policies towards the needs of the many rather than the few. Ultimately, the necessary values and creativity have to reside in individuals.
