Les industries de proximité au Japon
Structures, rôles et devenirs
LVMH et la Fondation France-Japon de l’EHESS s’associent dans un nouveau partenariat scientifique sur le thème « Les industries de proximité au Japon : Structures, rôles et devenirs ». Il se destine à l’étude approfondie des métiers et des savoir-faires existants au Japon, dont l’identification, la modélisation et la confrontation aux écosystèmes français contribueront à stimuler la réflexion sur les différents enjeux du devenir de l’artisanat. Le projet mobilise quatre chercheurs japonais qui apporteront une perspective pluridisciplinaire : Masayo Fujimoto (Université de Doshisha), professeure en sciences sociales ; Tomoko Hashino (Université de Kobe), professeure en histoire économique ; Hidemichi Miyake (Université de Senshu), maître de conférence en gestion ; Hiroyuki Okamuro (Université de Hitotsubashi), professeur en économie. La première réunion de travail a eu lieu le 13 avril 2018 à Tokyo.
