Technology Assistance as a Sideline

It is possible to provide specific technology assistance to solve the problems the company may have based on the knowledge, know-how and experience held by the faculties of Tokyo Tech. In this case, the faculty member will obtain the approval of Tokyo Tech and provide assistance to the company as a paid advisor as a sideline work. If an invention is made, either independently or jointly by the faculty member in the course of technology assistance, the faculty member must report it to Tokyo Tech, and obtain a decision regarding ownership of the discovery. Please note that the faculty member performing the technology assistance may not undertake collaborative research simultaneously with the company to whom the technology assistance is provided.
