Keio University's Basic Philosophy on Activities of the Section
In addition to education and research, Keio University's mission is to return the results of research findings to society. As such, we have publicly stated that “the results from research carried out at Keio University are an invaluable resource for the University, and we promote and support the aggressive protection and use of such intellectual properties." Under the guidance of these beliefs and philosophies, the Section for Intellectual Property operates with budgetary support of the University as an affiliated entity. For this reason, we have not adopted a membership system for the Section.
The Section for Intellectual Property acts as an interface between Keio University and society by transferring the intellectual assets borne from research findings into society. By collaborating closely with other organizations within the university that support research functions (i.e. The Section for Research Promotion that plans and promotes overall research efforts; the Office of Research Administration, which acts as the inquiry desk for funded research and joint research efforts as well as provides operational support to researchers), Section for Intellectual Property is able to protect research findings of the university through patents, actively transfer research findings to society, and at the same time return praise and criticism from society to the university. By doing so, Section for Intellectual Property hopes to further invigorate the research efforts at the university level.
