Book Description

This book demonstrates that long-awaited changes to technology policy and corporate strategy are now taking place in Japan. The study also questions whether it is the programme of reform or the will and ability to implement these reforms which is new. Contributors explore the repositioning of the Japanese science and technology system on three levels:
* institutional structure and technology policy
* organizational and managerial changes and business-government relations
* developments in key technology sectors
