"Taiwa" (dialogue) and Collaboration-Focused Innovation

DNP seeks to create value that solves social issues by collaborating with our customers and partners and synergizing their ideas and technologies with DNP’s strengths of printing and information (P&I). DNP calls this "P&I Innovations."

Taiwa (dialogue) and collaboration within the DNP Group


We promote Taiwa (dialogue) and collaboration among our employees who are working at different internal organizations, and who have diverse fields of expertise, to generate ideas and apply and develop existing technologies.

Taiwa (dialogue) and collaboration with partners


We engage in active dialogue with companies, universities, research institutes, customers and suppliers in other fields, and conduct joint research and development that leverages each partner's strengths.

Facilities for Taiwa (dialogue) and collaboration

At DNP, Taiwa (dialogue) and collaboration between people with diverse knowledge and perspectives form the driving force behind innovation. We established the P&I LAB., a presentation and collaboration facility, as a hub to promote a variety of innovations.

    At the P&I LAB., we create new products by synergizing DNP's unique technologies, developed and applied through the printing process, with the technologies and ideas of people outside the company. DNP also offers remote access services to the P&I LAB.
