Conflicts of Interest Policy

Established by the Executive Council on March 17, 2004

1. Purpose

Alongside education and research, contributing to society is the third main mission of Shizuoka University, which has at its core communication and cooperation among industry, academia, and government. In promoting this communication and cooperation, given the diversity in the respective objectives and functions of industry, academia, and government, conflicts of interest can arise with the University and its constituents.
