Research and development through co-creation with partners
Product lifecycles are shorter than ever because of intensifying global competition, ever-changing industries and diversified social needs.
In this context, we believe that integrating external partners (e.g. customers, companies, academia) and our strengths (core technologies) accumulated under our slogan, “Take full advantage of material intelligence.” is key to succeed in research and development.
We call such research and development “research and development through co-creation with partners” and opened the M-Lab Mitsui Kinzoku Open Innovation Site, where Mitsui Kinzoku employees exchange opinions with partners.
