Service Joint Research

Our university facilitates "Joint Research" with industry collaborators in consideration of its policy to maintain mutual respect and equality between the industry and academia. Under the Joint Research, our faculty members will work together with company researchers, and a "Resident Researcher" who conducts research in our university facilities may also be accepted from the company.

Research Expenses

The research expenses required for Joint Research are calculated as the aggregate of Direct Expenses and Indirect Expenses* (i.e. Industry-University Collaboration Fees). If the collaborator dispatches Resident Researcher, we require a Resident Fee of 432,000 JPY/person/year (i.e. 216,000 JPY/person/6 months).

Indirect Expenses (i.e. Industry-University Collaboration Fees) is calculated as 10% of Direct Expenses in principle and used for our university's promotion of industry-university collaboration activities.
