Science and technology policy in Japan has not been working well so far. This problem comes from the inefficient management of the "creation of value" and "creation of knowledge." To overcome this problem, developing a system that supports the draw-up policy is necessary. For this purpose, we have been developing an innovation search engine called the "Japan Knowledge Map" in the geographic space. In this paper, we explain this search engine and introduce some examples of its application. In particular, we focus on the current state of field fusion and the time evolution of field fusion. We also discuss the management of open innovation.
