Comments by Director and Advanced Technology R&D Division General Manager Masahiro Kanda 

We believe that we were able to receive this award for the third time thanks to our company’s strategic efforts in the area of intellectual property. ​

In recent years, the drive for technological innovation has increased in all industries, including  the automobile industry. Moving forward, we believe that joint research and  industry-government-academia collaborations in new business areas beyond existing ones will  be crucial. In order to accelerate innovation and create new value, we will continue to promote  intellectual property activities that utilize our global network. ​
