Patent Data

RIKEN not only disseminates its research results each year in top-tier science journals, it also actively harnesses those discoveries and inventions with commercial potential and secures legal protection for its research achievements by registering many patents every year. The Technology Transfer Office (TTO) manages the RIKEN technology transfer portfolio and acts as a conduit between RIKEN and the private sector. Responsible for intellectual property patent applications, registrations, licenses and contracts, the TTO also collaborates with industry, acquires external and competitive funding, and supports RIKEN scientists in developing practical applications for their research.
