    2003.02Japanese National Universities have had an independent legal status from April, 2004. They changed the management system of intellectual properties from personal belongings to corporate ownership. I keep research on appropriate ways of intellectual property management and technology transfer from university to industry..

1. Megumi Takata, Koichi Nakagawa, Mari Yoshida, Terumasa Matsuyuki, Toshihiko Matsuhashi, Kosuke Kato, Nursing entrepreneurship: A conceptual study of a new focus for technology transfer professionals, ISPIM Innovation Conference 2018 (Proceedings), 2018.05, This study proposes a new focus for technology transfer professionals who enable university technology commercialization. The role of universities in realizing innovation has grown increasingly important. However, technological commercialization stemming from universities is quite difficult because of different skills and functions needed in during the stages between technological invention and business realization. To address such situations, this study proposes a new responsibility for technology transfer professionals working between the academic inventor and surrogate entrepreneur, namely that of a nursing entrepreneur. We identify the key behaviours and personal characteristics of a nursing entrepreneur and use effectuation theory to identify similarities in the behavioural patterns of this role and those of expert entrepreneurs. Our perspective sheds light on the hidden entrepreneurial role of technology transfer professional. To accelerate innovation out of universities, we recommend that such skills should be developed by education and training, and that people with those skills should be employed and promoted..
2. Megumi Takata, Koichi Nakagawa, Kosuke Kato, Terumasa Matsuyuki, Toshihiko Matsuhashi, University-Industry collaborative entrepreneurship education program as a trading zone: Case of Osaka University, Technology Innovation Management Review, June 2017, 7, 6, 38-49, 2017.06, [URL], University-industry collaborative education is a potential solution for entrepreneurship training. It can give participants both sophisticated theory from university and experiential know-hows from industry, and both contribute to successful entrepreneur activities. This paper proposes the concept of trading zone can be considered as potential framework for capturing this education method. That’s to say, the exchange of knowledge between students and practitioners is the essential learning experience of university-industry collaborative education. Furthermore, this study proposes heterogeneity between students and practitioners makes that exchange more meaningful, shared language provided by program staffs make exchange efficient, and the temporality and the extraordinariness of the program accelerate that exchange. While external validity should be checked in the future study, this study gives one evidence for those our propositions, from the qualitative and quantitative analysis of Osaka University case..

This paper proposes deployment plan of hydrogen infrastructure for the success of their market penetration in the Northeastern United States. The plan consists of three-timeline stages from 2013 to 2025 and divides the designated region into urban area, suburban area and area adjacent to expressway, so that easy to access to hydrogen stations can be realized. Station is chosen from four types of stations: off-site station, urban-type on-site station, suburban-type on-site station and portable station, associated with growing demand. In addition, on-site station is used as hydrogen production factory for off-site station to save total investment. This deployment plan shows that 83% of urban residents can reach station within 10 min in 2025, and that more than 90% people especially in four major cities: Boston, New York City, Philadelphia, and Washington, D.C. can get to station within 10 min by Geographic Information System (GIS) calculation..
5. Megumi Takata, Study of the Process of University Technology Commercialization: The Roles and Effects of Educational Courses, International Journal of Engineering Innovation and Management, Volume 1, Issue 1, November 2011 (ISSN 2185-5544), 1, 1, 15-28, 2011.11, [URL], This study seeks to clarify the features and the effects of educational courses on the commercialization of university developed technologies. In a process of commercialization, a gap exists between the Imagining stage and the Incubating stage. This gap arises because of the lack of Dual Insight and stakeholders’ interest, which are suggested in Jolly’s model. To bridge this gap, some universities have developed educational courses. From detailed case analysis, it is clear that these educational courses are suitable for mobilizing from the Imagining stage to the Incubating stage of the commercialization process. From this result, the author proposes an ‘Education Model’ as a model of university technology commercialization..
