Abstract: Japanese firms, having to face global innovation competition and business reorganization targeting emerging markets in the world, are actively engaged in open innovation. In this paper, an interview survey conducted on nine large Japanese manufacturers provides the new trends in open and global innovation. They include (1) establishment of a dedicated function of open innovation, (2) open approach for the whole process of new business development, (3) strategic alliance activities, (4) collaboration with players in different industries for social innovation and (5) globalization of research and development (R&D) in emerging economies. Some policy implications drawn from the survey are (1) strengthening of management of technology (MOT) education, (2) stronger intellectual property rights (IPR) system and activating of the technology market and (3) policy actions against international technology leakage.
