Japan MA-T️ Industry Association The core technology of MA-T(R), a technology originating in Japan, is now a vailable through the construction of a multi-industry “license platform”

Japan MA-T️ Industry Association
By building a multi-industry “license platform”, the core technology of MA-T(R), a technology originating in Japan, is now available. Start of license platform operation as a mechanism to accelerate open innovation ……
The Japan MA-T Industry Association has been working on trials and utilization of MA-T technology, and currently has approximately 120 member companies, mainly top companies in each industry. Three and a half years have passed since our association was established, and we have seen a number of projects progressing from the technology trial stage to the social implementation stage. Therefore, we will implement a “license platform” from July 1, 2024 as a mechanism to support the business activities of member companies.
Through this system, we will accelerate the social implementation of MA-T(R) and also promote the mutual use of technologies with the aim of creating “innovation” that combines technologies. If we build a license platform as a new proposal for patent utilization and have it used by many member companies, we hope that it will lead to the spread and development of MA-T(R) and further technological innovation. [License platform overview]

●Characteristic 1: Establishment of a system that enables mutual enforcement of patents through sublicenses
There is no need to transfer the patent right holder. The association receives licenses in the form of sublicenses from member companies, organizes these patents, and, in response to applications from member companies, sublicenses them to companies that wish to implement the patents.
●Feature 2: Operation of patent list to promote mutual use of MA-T technology 1. Our association steering committee
In order to promote the utilization of MA-T related patents, member companies of our association can view the patent list (list of patent rights that can be sublicensed). In addition, the patent list will be updated from time to time by our organization’s steering committee. 2. Application conditions for member companies that can sublicense Member companies can apply for sublicenses for not only one patent, but also multiple patents at once.
3.Technical fields covered by the patent list
In addition to MA-T related patents, we will add patents requested by member companies to our patent list to promote mutual use with member companies’ proprietary domain technologies.
●Feature 3: Reduce the cost of introducing new technologies such as MA-T technology
We have created a system to eliminate the need for specialized and time-consuming intellectual property due diligence and contract negotiations as much as possible. This is a system that allows you to estimate sublicense costs for industrialization after trialing the technology.
*The sublicense fee is set lower than the average license fee based on the guidelines of the Japan Patent Office.
As stated above, our association promotes the mutual use of MA-T related patents and our own patents, and allows industrial association members to utilize the licensing platform, thereby supporting the development of new technologies and the creation of business opportunities for member companies. .
