In this symposium, the interaction between business development and policy regarding innovation based on the latest technological trends in the field of space development will be analyzed. Additionally, the aim of this symposium is to discuss the ideal form of policy for more broadly promoting innovation, using space development as an example while keeping in mind the relationship of policy to industry, as well as to deepen our understanding of this relationship.  
Various arguments and analyses have been produced concerning innovation. However, this symposium aims to debate the prospects of space development while discussing what kind of further innovations and policies are necessary in order to progress to the stage of solving problems through space development, especially social problems, and developing a space industry starting from our current situation. At the same time, this symposium will provide room for discussing the role universities should perform, and what policies are needed for the promotion of innovation, as well as the interaction of innovation and policy, from a broader perspective based on the example of space.
