The JVCKENWOOD Group has been promoting the “creation of a future by connecting people, time and space” as a technology development strategy, while returning to the origin of Monozukuri(Manufacturing). We are conducting research and technology development with a view to the next generation based on the core technologies of image, sound, communication and design cultivated since the JVC and Kenwood era.
In 2021, we established the Prospective Creation Research Laboratory which is committed to making contributions to daily life and creating new value in the future, with a priority on the topics of solving societal issues, enhancing incubation, creating intellectual properties and advancing technical skills.
In addition to expanding its existing business, the JVCKENWOOD Group also aims to expand in adjacent and new business areas by actively promoting its original core technologies as well as open innovation in collaboration with partners in various industries, and developing new technologies that lead to advanced "solution business" services for resolving social issues. Initiatives include implementing human-centric design with a focus on user experience and user interface, and responding to drastic changes in security technologies.
With emphasis on a design management perspective, we will create new value and promote the realization of a connected world by applying a design perspective to our core technologies. Through collaboration and co-creation by the Future Creation Research Institute, JVCKENWOOD Design and Intellectual Property Department, we will drive initiatives for the creation of next generation intellectual property and promote the management of intellectual property in line with our technology development strategy.
Innovation brought about by such initiatives will be accumulated as a portfolio of intellectual property expected to be used in the future, and utilized in our business and management as a source of creating new value and strengthening our competitive edge.
