Information and Communication Technologies in Japan, Germany and the U.S.: Institutional Frameworks, Competitiveness and Learning Processes

24.10.2003 - 25.10.2003

Koordination: Andreas Moerke; Cornelia Storz (Japanzentrum)

Abriss

The German Institute for Japanese Studies (DIJ) and the Centre for Japanese Studies at Marburg University are organising an international conference on the creation and use of information and communication technologies in Japan, Germany and the U.S. The conference will address two questions:

  1. What institutional frameworks can best support such technologies in Japanese, German and American organisations?
  2. How have such technologies generated competitive advantages for organisations that have used them and what have these organisations learned in the process?

The conference will be divided in two parts. On the first day, we will address the institutional conditions for successfully creating and using information and communication technologies. The second day will be dedicated to the micro level: how enterprises have changed to incorporate the new technologies, and which competitive advantages have resulted from these technologies.
In order to explore questions in depth for all three countries, we have invited well-known researchers from the U.S., Germany, and Japan, among them Professor Georg SCHREYÖGG (Free University Berlin), Professor Osamu SUDOH (Tokyo University), and Professor Yoshiya TERAMOTO (Waseda University). The participation as well of a number of prominent business people is intended to create an opportunity for bringing together both theory and real-world business experience.
The conference is the centrepiece of a combined project of the German Institute for Japanese Studies in Tokyo and the Centre for Japanese Studies in Marburg and is supported by the Japan Foundation and the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research.
