Industry-Academia-Government Collaboration Policy

(Rules regarding academic research ties with external organizations etc.)

For the improvement of education and medical treatments and the development of research at Dokkyo Medical University, besides taking the steps to change the structure of education, medical treatments, and research within the university, it has become increasingly necessary to introduce academic exchanges with external organizations and also bring in external funding.

However, if academic research collaborations with external organizations are pursued without proper research policies, the university may become distorted which could result in losing the reasons for the very existence of the university.

The university has established these rules with the purpose of being able to expand academic research ties with external organizations properly while maintaining the university’s independence and originality.


Our university will therefore enact as the basic principles the following guidelines when establishing academic research ties with external organizations.

To defend the freedom and independence of studying.

To conduct research that will contribute to world peace and to the welfare of humans, and not to conduct military research and military development.

To contribute to the improvement of education and medical treatments and to the development of research activities at this university.

Not to conduct confidential research that prohibits the publishing of research results.

To be socially fair.

To make available relevant information materials so that based on a democratic process, decisions can be made on partnerships, etc.

Inter-collegiate Collaboration
University Consortium Tochigi

As members of the University Consortium Tochigi, universities from Tochigi Prefecture combine their intellectual resources with local communities and with the diverse powers of local industries, with the objective to uncover a new local power that will contribute widely to further development of local communities and industries.

In University Consortium Tochigi, each higher education institution member has agreed to work together to improve the contents, level, and quality of their education so they can be measured with the objective to enter an agreement allowing equivalency of study units for those courses agreed upon so that students can enroll in these courses at the registered universities. In addition, we provide support for projects in which students take the initiative, such as activities that contribute to local communities and interact with students from other organizations.

In addition, as a "Regional Cooperation Project Committee" member, we cooperate in producing and publishing tools such as "University Consortium Tochigi Pamphlet” and "Campus Net" to help local high school students better understand universities and promote higher education as well as holding "Student & Corporate Research Presentation Events" and other related events.
