[Notes]

ⓐ If there are more than one inventor (participant) for intellectual property rights (registered or applied for) and start-up items (OASIS-6 and OASIS-9), the total points divided by the number of inventors (participants) are recognized only.

ⓑ When more than two items are from the same category, they are counted as one. (e.g.: 10 points are awarded even with the three design application cases.)

③ OASIS courses can be individually enrolled (However, participants cannot take OASIS-2 before OASIS-1).
