Research institutions include university laboratories, national/public research labs, libraries, or the research groups of other equivalent institutions.

General use: The usage fee for other research that will not be done for commercial purposes is as follows

Usage fee: 250,000 yen (excluding tax)

Commercial use: Refers to use for profit/commercial purposes other than the above. Also, if applicable, the use of results obtained via academic use for commercial purposes.

Usage fee: 500,000 yen (excluding tax) (see also Note 3)

Note 1: Applications from overseas will be treated the same as above.

Note 2: In the case of applications from research institutions/laboratories, it is assumed that the application will be filed under the name of the representative of the organization.
There is no issue with multiple researchers from the same organization using the CSJ to carry out private or joint research.
It is allowable to conduct joint research with researchers outside of the organization that applied for the CSJ, but when results are announced the first author must be a member of the applying organization.
Use of CSJ in joint research is not allowed in the cases of student or infividual applicants.

Note 3: Even if you have entered into a contract for academic use, if the possibility of commercialization occurs, you must enter a new agreement for commercial use.

    

As a result, an additional fee for commercial use will be incured.

For example: if after applying for general use, the possibility of commercialization occured.
General use fee of 250,000 yen + commercial use fee of 500,000 yen = total of 750,000 yen (excluding tax).
