Management of international R&D projects
Mitsubishi Research Institute, Inc., a Japanese think tank which belongs to a larger group company that deals with various sectors. We have mainly collaborated with energy sectors through the project scheme based on the governmental organization, though there have been some projects dealt with different sectors. These projects on energy include innovative technologies such as Power Electronics and High Temperature Superconductor Cable. In both cases, i-deals provided the primary research on the opportunity assessment; the former to apply the technology and the latter to apply a novel materials. A slightly different approach was taken when we carried out a project for the Combined Cycle Power Plant´s O&M and we conducted a research on Market perspective and the impact of regulatory changes. In all cases, various meetings and on-sight visits were organized with the key players of the sector and the potential client/business partner. The project was funded by Public R&D fund. Duration of each project was 1.5 month to 2 month each.
