Through this method, the university uses an endowment from a company to establish a new chair or research laboratory. The chair or research laboratory will be established independently by Kyoto University in accordance with the donor’s interests. If it is established within a graduate school, it will be established as an endowed chair. If it is established within an institute, center, or other facility, it will be established as an endowed research laboratory. It is possible to include the name of the company within the name of the chair or research laboratory. Fundamental information, such as the total amount of the endowment, the period, and the subject of the education and research being undertaken will be publicly disclosed.
Generally from three to five years (renewable)
In general, any IP developed will be the property of the university.
Donors who reside in prefectures/municipalities that designate Kyoto University as a corporation eligible for the deduction of donations in their ordinance are eligible for an individual inhabitant tax deduction.
