Current innovation projects

Every year, we are working on hundreds of innovation projects with researchers and students at Lund University. Let's have a look at what is going on in some of them!

Sotaro Shibayama – A new Idea Management app

Sotaro has been engaging in research in the area called Economics of Knowledge. Knowledge is considered being the engine of our economy, and we rely on knowledge workers' ability to conceive and develop ideas.

One of Sotaro's projects concerns the process of idea generation particularly in the context of academic science, investigating how original ideas are generated and lead to scientific breakthroughs. He is now developing an app inspired by this and draws on techniques of data science developed in the project.
