Research Collaboration and Promotion Center

About us

Established in 1999, the Waseda University Research Collaboration and Promotion Center manages Waseda University intellectual property and research contracts regarding industry-academia-government collaboration and promotes the development of practical applications of the intellectual property through technology transfers. The Center also actively engages in promoting incubation activities for technology invented at the university.

Collaboration among industry, academia, and government is indispensable for the advancement of universities as well as the revitalization of industry. Moreover, because Japan seeks to have technology drive the nation’s overall development, universities can be said to have a particularly vital role to play given the importance of advancing science and technology in this context.

I believe it is the mission of universities to contribute to the further development of industry and the realization of a sustainable society, by creating innovations through industry-academia-government collaboration seeing the world as its stage. In addition to building a solid foundation for industry-academia-government collaboration at Waseda, the Research Collaboration and Promotion Center will seek the “practical utilization of knowledge,” which is key to Waseda’s mission.
