The era of the "dependence on the central government" is over, and national universities have entered an era in which they aim for self-sufficiency. Under such circum-stances, the first thing that academics should aim for is "patent royalties". However, Japanese academics are still not familiar with "patents". This article provides a short overview of 3 points regarding "patents.", which are (1) the 5 conditions for a patent to be granted, (2) a patent issued by the university alone (single application), and (3) the time schedule before and after the patent application.

Key words: Industry-academia Collaboration, University-launched Venture, Patent
