Tohoku Techno Arch Co., Ltd. aims to support the creation of new technologies and industries, based on intellectual property developed by universities. It was established on November 5, 1998, with the support of interested researchers at Tohoku University, along with individuals at other national universities and colleges of technology in the Tohoku area, including Niigata. On December 4 of the same year, Tohoku Techno Arch Co., Ltd. was approved as an official Technology Licensing Organization (TLO) by both Japan's Ministry of Education, Culture and Science, and Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry under the Law for Promoting University-Industry Technology Transfer.

The Law for Promoting University-Industry Technology Transfer was established in May 1998 to assist individual universities in founding their own TLOs and support their operation. The aim of TLOs is to transferring intercultural properties of research results from universities and colleges of technology to business corporations, and to return the revenues to inventors as well as their laboratories and universities.

Tohoku Techno Arch Co., Ltd. is serving as a partner in providing technology seeds for corporations who wish to obtain technological innovations and enhance their competitiveness; and at the same time will act as an intermediary for returning the research results of university researchers to society.

We try to provide these services to anyone who is interested, regardless of their degree of experience in licensing or patent application. Please feel free to contact us at any time with your inquiries or for information. All our staffs are more than willing to talk with you and offer advice.
