About “Conflict of Interest Management”
In recent years, because of the development and progress in industry-academia-government collaboration, universities are facing the increasing potential risks associated with conflict of interest, such as loss of credibility and disclosure of technologies. Establishing a university’s integrity and social trust is essential to appropriately promote industryacademia-government collaborations. In some cases, implementing management measures for conflict of interest is a funding precondition for research projects.
About the “Conflict of Interest Annual Self-Disclosure System”
Around October-November every year, all the faculty members (full-time and part-time) as well as administrative staff working on industry-academia collaborations are required to disclose their personal information on financial interests and industry-academia collaboration activities. Those who received an e-mail notice from Legal Affairs Section, Office of Research and Innovation, are requested to submit their report via “T2Report” on the Tokyo Tech Portal.
