Course description and aims

This lecture aims to systematically understand the arguments of existing research on R&D planning, and to gain the knowledge and ability to construct own logic and apply it in practice. For this purpose, students will make a presentation of the existing research, present their own arguments and logic, and hold discussions. Through the discussion, we expect that the students will be able to gain new perspectives on phenomena, construct their own logic, and devise practical solutions for their own issues.
