Promotion of Collaborative Research by Experienced Coordinators
The main feature is that a coordinator is assigned for each research topic to support the promotion of research.
Coordinators make use of the rich knowledge and experience in the private sector and give advice for commercialization from the consultation stage.
Additionally, in the process of public advertisement for participants in research groups, a preliminary acceptance period was established with coordinators interviewing the applicants between the preliminary acceptance and the public advertisement for participants. We make adjustments to get participants involved with industry-academia-government-affiliated organizations and research and testing institutions.
Arrangement of Commercialization Schedule
When establishing a research group, we research issues and organize a research schedule aimed at commercialization and support with optimal steps for commercialization, including making use of externally funded projects as well as joint research projects.
With regard to external funds, in addition to raising operating expenses related to policy tasks from Fukuoka Prefecture, we also propose joint research to the country and special status corporations, etc., and aim to secure research grants.
※ "Industry" includes one or more companies with operations in Fukuoka Prefecture
Provision of research funds (outsourcing of joint research)
In “research groups” and “joint research projects”, we support joint research teams with funds for joint research.
Introduction of coordinators
In promotion of joint research, a coordinator with rich experience in the private sector will provide comprehensive support from the joint research planning stage to commercialization.
We advise on market (needs) research and product planning points, raw materials procurement, potential customers and approaches for products, etc., and accompany for negotiations with responsible persons.
Public advertisement for research groups
Every year, we take applications for research topics with high expectations of business efficiency and of being commercialized from joint research teams from the industry, academia, government and the private sector, and set up research groups. In addition, since there is a preliminary acceptance period when public advertisements for research groups are made, it is possible to receive advice from coordinators on creating proposals, etc.
Selection results for research groups and joint research projects
We inform you on the research groups selected and on the outline of joint research projects.Selection results from the past are also posted.
We would like to introduce what was commercialized as a result of joint research support by our center.

Demonstration Test Site
Demonstration facilities can be built at the "Demonstration Testing Site for the Fukuoka Research Commercialization Center For Recycling Systems" located in the Kitakyushu Eco Town Demonstration Research Area, and research and development with an aim at commercialization can be commenced.
For research topics adopted by the center's research groups and joint research projects, this demonstration test site can be used at no extra charge. "
