Report

【Submission of user’s report】
This program is commissioned by the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology, which requires publication of a user’s report. The publication may be delayed for 2 years in order to apply for a patent and submit a paper.

【Proprietary use】
If a user wish not to publish a user’s report then this research is treated as an independent study in NIMS.
A project type change (a project with publication of the results --> a self-sponsored project) is available.
Regarding to user’s report submission, if you change your project type in middle of year, the report about “a project with publication of the results” must be submitted, but no reports are required about “self-sponsored project”.
The change is acceptable in the middle of fiscal year, but a new contract with NIMS is needed. (Non-disclosure agreement, fee, etc.). The fee after the change will be set based upon the rule of NIMS.
If you wish to choose “self-sponsored project”, please consult with our staff.
