URA provides support that integrates basic research, applied research projects, and returning benefits to society through industry-academia cooperation.

In accordance with our founding principle, “Building a better future with science”, the Tokyo University of Science (TUS) has been conducting education and research to support the scientific and technological advancement in Japan for more than 130 years. Today the Tokyo University of Science aims to be a global university with the international competitiveness, envisioning ourselves not only as TUS of Japan but also TUS of the world.

In order to bring the “unique research of TUS” up to the world-class level while valuing basic research, TUS focuses on areas with high originality and strong social needs, and drives globally acknowledged research. TUS is also building a framework for industry-university cooperation that will steadily improve the standing until TUS ranks as one of the world’s leading universities.

Based on the Mid-term Plan for Research Strategies of TUS, the University Research Administration Center, established in April 2014, is supporting research activities at TUS and at the same time driving contribution to the society through industry-university cooperation.

Staffed with highly-professional URAs*, the University Research Administration Center is composed of four divisions: Planning and Management Division, Research Strategy Formulation Division, Research & Industry-University Cooperation Supporting Division, and Regional Alliance & Commercialization Promotion Division. We are expanding our operations throughout the university as the organization in TUS Organization for Research Advancement.
