JCAP researchers strive to transfer the scientific and engineering knowledge created in the Hub to maximize societal impact through generation of Invention Disclosures and development of partnerships with industry


JCAP’s lead institution and its partners have excellent track record of generating groundbreaking discoveries that led directly to the creation of products and services that benefit society. In line with this entrepreneurial tradition, JCAP researchers are taking results of their work and filing Invention Disclosure. To date, the Hub has filed over 40 Invention Disclosures and over 30 provisional applications.

JCAP has established an Industrial Partnership Program. Panasonic Corporation is JCAP’s first Industrial Member. As JCAP Industrial Members, Corporations can pursue joint work with the Hub and also have an opportunity to engage with other members of the partnership.
