An Interactive Concept Evaluation Model for Social Implementation of Methane Hydrate Development
- Associate Professor Yoshihiro Konno, Associate Professor Ryota Wada
Social expectations for Methane Hydrate (MH) development change with the rapid transition of the social landscape. At the same time, innovation is opening the possibility of various new concepts of MH development. Decision-making for R&D investment is challenging, as they must be made towards a complex and socio-technical system that has not been defined. We think the interaction between technology and society is the key to tackle such a challenge, and currently developing an interactive concept evaluation model to efficiently accelerate the interaction.
