FFJ is pleased to announce the publication of Innovation Beyond Technology. Science for Society and Interdisciplinary Approaches by Springer. This book is the outcome of the close collaboration between JST, CNRS and EHESS for the organization of two conferences in 2015 and 2016: "Engaging Society in Innovation and Creativity: Perspectives from Social Sciences and Humanities" et "Innovation Beyond Technique ".
The core of this project is based on a series of convictions: Innovation should be thought, defined, and implemented beyond technology; a contribution from Social Sciences and Humanities (SSH) is required to seriously go beyond a narrow technological view; interdisciplinary approaches within SSH and between SSH and sciences are crucial; a collaboration between Japanese and French institutions and individual researchers will be beneficial because of the complementarities between their approaches.
This works presents an original and truly interdisciplinary approach to innovation by some of the best specialists in the field.
