International industry-academia collaborative research（IIACR）is a developing form of R&D for creating new knowledge and stimulating innovation. However, it is difficult to pursue because of the substantial institutional distance between industry and academia as well as the significant geographical distances between various countries. This year, we launched a research project on IIACR targeting Germany, Japan, and the United States to discover the factors behind success in IIACR. We will make presentations on the current status of IIACR, research framework, and research methods.
