Joint research contract
◆What is a joint research?
Joint research means research carried out by private organization(for example) researchers and our researchers involved in a common task on equal footing.
There are two ways to pursue joint research.
Dispatched researchers from a private organization and our faculty members will carry out joint research together. The organization must send researchers to us. Concerning the term of the dispatch, previous arrangements must be made with our faculties. No academic background or experience of the dispatched researchers is required. The research fund for a joint researcher is 420,000 yen (including tax) per year.
Private organization researchers and our faculty members will carry out joint research in each other's workplace by sharing a common task. The organization does not need to send researchers to us. There is no lower limit of research fund if it is enough to carry out the research.
◆How are intellectual property rights treated？
Generated intellectual property will be owned jointly. However, according to the invention, if both participants agree, either the university or the private organization can solely own patent rights. It is also possible through discussion to set up an exclusive possession of the common intellectual property based on the agreed contract.
◆How about a contract form for joint research？
We will provide a form, but it will be a rough draft. Please contact us to inquire about the contract.
