Yokohama City University’s Advanced Medical Research Center was the first in the world to establish the “Communication Design Center” to utilize creative methods in medical research, and has been conducting basic research on new ways to achieve well-being in daily life and has been accumulating achievements in adult education, industry-university joint research, and government-led projects. Whatever is a creative studio that has taken challenges to solve problems in unexplored areas and create new values, armed with unique ideas and the ability to deliver that breaks out existing frameworks and methods.
The two parties teamed up for the first time in 2021 to participate in a moonshot R&D open call for the “MILLENIA Program” by the Cabinet Office. Our “Enabling City” proposal aimed for a world where everyone could achieve self-actualization by establishing a methodology to promote well-being, focusing on happiness in addition to health, and made it to a finalist. With this achievement, the team decided to co-found a new company, Open Medical Lab, to take in the challenges of social implementation of well-being based on this proposal.
Open Medical Lab will help companies to realize well-being powered by our fresh ideas that go beyond conventional approaches, providing total support from consulting to planning and implementation while venturing our own R&D and service development.
