Applying for use of the University’s name


“The use of the University’s name” refers to the contractual use of the name of Kyushu University in joint research conducted by faculty members along with corporations. It also includes using the name of the University in products and services which use the results of funded research, technical advice as well as research development consulting.

An application with a designated form needs to be submitted by corporations, and after confirming and examining the application, a decision will be made.

Corporations need to confirm the application contents with relevant faculty members in advance.

Relevant faculty members must check if the content of the application is true and correct, or whether the content could be misinterpreted, so that neither they, nor the University, will be held responsible.

【Basic ideas】
  • ・It has to show the fact that it is the result of joint research with the University.
  • ・It should not give the wrong idea due to exaggerations about the product information or factually incorrect displays.
  • ・It has to make a clear distinction between the University and manufacturer and seller of the product so that the University is not responsible for the product according to the Product Liability Act. In general, it cannot be displayed on the product itself.
  • ・Pictures of the facilities of the University or faculty and administrative staff, images or logo cannot be used.
