Technical Guidance

At KU we are moving ahead with Industry-Academia-Government Collaborations in accordance with various collaboration systems so as to respond to varied demands from the world of industry. One of these systems is the Technical Guidance System. In response to commissions from private organizations and so forth, this System supports the operations or activities of the commissioning organization through guidance and advice grounded in our faculty's specialized knowledge in education, research and technology.

<Guidance Fee and Equipment Usage Fees>
The fee for technical guidance is 10,000 yen per hour. A commissioning organization will need to conclude an agreement with KU in order to obtain our technical guidance. The flow of the procedures for such agreement is as in the flow diagram below.
If you have any questions regarding the Technical Guidance System outlined above, please make your inquiries to the I-A-G Collaboration Division of the Kyushu University Scientific Research Promotion Department (Tel: +81-92-802-5067).
