LLP is a practice course in which participants can learn the methods of starting up a high-tech business used in Silicon Valley.

We will be holding one-on-one, face-to-face in interviews with actual potential businesses, and apply business plans that can lead to new businesses and innovation. This training course is one in which you will quickly acquire practical skills to create new businesses from research results using technology from the university.

Through practical learning in which students draw up a commercialization plan for science technology being developed at Osaka University and other institutions, students will find promising uses for research results that have yet to find use or market creation potential, and acquire the skills that will lead to commercialization and innovation.
