Kyoto University will benefit society by promoting the collaborative research activities in accordance with the Kyoto University Basic Principle, and developing measures to exploit and utilize intellectual property created as a result of research accomplishment at the institution. In order to form and ignite the cycle of intellectual creation through the collaborative research projects, it is essential to establish a systematic and strategic structure to handle intellectual property. The institution should secure exclusive rights for the research results which have the potential for industrial application, and protect them under Intellectual Property Law.

Chemistry Department Information
Institute for Chemical Research, launched in 1926 as the first research institute at Kyoto University, commemorates its 86th anniversary this autumn, but its true roots date back to 1915 (Specialized center for chemical research founded at Kyoto Imperial University, College of Science for the study of special medicinal substance, “Salvarsan, ”that is, arsphenamine). Our founding vision at the time of foundation above is to “Excel in the Investigation of Basic Principles of Chemistry and Their Applications.” We have reached the current large-scale organization of five research divisions and three centers. Currently, about 100 faculty members, 210 graduate students and 50 researchers are engaged in research activities in 32 laboratories supervised full-time professors. Further we have 5 laboratories supervised by visiting professors and an endowed laboratory
