Innovation in the East Asian Automotive Industry
Impressions from International Workshop
From fuel cell cars to ‘frugal innovations’ adapted to the Chinese market – is the focus of automotive innovation shifting to East Asia? To discuss this, the Electric Mobility research group at the IN-EAST School of Advanced Studies hosted a two-day international workshop on "Innovation in the East Asian Automotive Industry" on June 19 and 20, 2015.
With 36 participants from Asia and Europe, the workshop provided a platform for exchange and discussion between scholars and managers from different regions. The two workshop days were opened by two prominent keynote speakers in this field, Professor Takahiro Fujimoto (University of Tokyo) and Professor Paul Hong (University of Toledo).
