Drug companies, such as GSK, Pﬁzer, and Merck, rely on research to create highly proﬁtable drugs for treating ulcers or producing AIDS inhibitors. Companies such as Sony in consumer electronics, Samsung in DRAM semiconductors, BMW in cars, HSBC with its online ﬁnancial services (First Direct), and Google with its search engines, depend on new products and services to provide the means by which they compete, and these innovations to a large extent deﬁne their companies.
OEL has been engaged in a number of Japanese government-sponsored collaborative R & D projects, with varying degrees of success. While his staﬀ have been uncomfortable sharing scientiﬁc research with companies with which they vigorously compete, experiences of working collaboratively with smaller overseas ﬁrms, which are generally much quicker at commercializing basic research, have been very positive. Yamamoto is also aware of the potential of a number of highly specialized local small research and software ﬁrms, whose creativity he wishes to access.
