  • Group of Strategy-Planning for Intellectual Property

    The Group of Strategy-Planning for Intellectual Property uncovers, manages, and utilizes strategically important intellectual property obtained through the innovative projects of the Tohoku Medical Megabank Organization (ToMMo)-It deals with notably, human outputs with proprietary value, including patent, copyright, trademark, and design-and also supports the continuation of the projects. In addition, the Group redistributes the benefits to society in a broad sense, primarily to the areas affected by the Great East Japan Earthquake through business-university-public-private partnerships. To make this possible, the Group, with the cooperation of the departments of the Organization, the Tohoku University Office of Cooperative Research and Development, and its departments, aims to formulate the necessary activity plans in detail, reap benefits as an outcome of knowledge creation, and contribute to society by setting into motion this positive cycle.
