■What is TTOP?
TTOP is an industry-academia collaboration event related to open innovation and venture-related activities, which will be held over two days on November 10th and 11th, 2022, and will be divided into five sessions, sponsored by Tokyo Institute of Technology. This event, which has been held since 2019, will be held for the fourth time. This event was launched with the aim of spreading the culture of
industry-academia collaboration in Japan, where academia and business, which are attracting attention around the world, bring about innovation. In this field, where there are still many problems in Japan, it is an advanced initiative to think about the next-generation industry-academia collaboration platform. This year’s theme is “Ecosystem”. The background to this is that even in open innovation and startups, the current global trend is to incorporate multiple players and stakeholders into the system and build an ecosystem.
