Division of Social Collaboration

Division overview

The Division of Social Collaboration forms and manages networks with external organizations, companies, and local governments. The division also builds a foundation for discovering social needs that will become design seeds. These partnerships serve as a platform for the implementation of design products. This division attempts to obtain feedback for creating better designs and to become a medium to communicate design outcomes in society-wide.
