1.Cooperative Research

Cooperative research is divided into three different types, for which a company can choose from depending on the company's needs. Also, a company using the cooperative research program will be able to take advantage of tax deductions, that is, it will be able to deduct a fixed amount of cooperative expenses from the company's corporate taxes.

  • a.Cooperative research for which a company shall accept both "Researcher(s)" and "direct and indirect expenses concerning research", for which researcher(s) of the University shall conduct research for a theme common with the company
    Expenses = Direct and indirect expenses + Cooperative researcher expenses
  • b.Cooperative research for which a company shall accept "researcher(s)" only, and which researcher(s) of the University shall conduct concerning research for a theme common with the company
    Expense = Cooperative researchers expense
  • c.Cooperative research for which a company shall accept "direct expense concerning research" only, and for which researcher(s) of the University shall conduct research for a theme common with the company
    Expense = Direct and indirect expenses

2.Commissioned Research
