Research Collaboration and Promotion Center

Greeting from director

Message from the Director of the Research Collaboration and Promotion Center


Since its establishment in 1999, the Waseda University Research Collaboration and Promotion Center has been actively engaged in managing various license and research contracts regarding industry-academic-government collaboration and in incubation activities as a developed form of such management.

This tripartite collaboration is of critical importance for the development of universities and the stimulation of industry, and universities play a particularly important role in the creation of new scientific technologies and innovations.

Amid rapid internationalization in all areas of life, the key to the future lies in how universities are able to contribute to industrial development and fulfill their essential role in that development. Waseda University Research Collaboration and Promotion Center will build a solid foundation for tripartite collaboration and will practice the application of science, which is one of the founding principles of Waseda University.
