Confidentiality & Publications (2019)
Freedom to publish and need to protect confidential information are two issues that define the basic differences between the missions of universities and corporate sponsors. The interplay of these terms requires careful thought and clear drafting. Issues of scope, timing, policies, law, and control need to be considered along with the purpose of the project, the intentions of the parties, the location of the research, and the kind of personnel involved. This webinar reviews the basic positions and common accommodation of both parties, along with the related issues, practical considerations, and best practices.
Who Should Attend?
This is an advanced-level webinar intended for audiences with working knowledge of publication policies and protection of confidential information. The webinar is targeted to experienced corporate and academic representatives with responsibility for understanding the need for access to confidential information and for reviewing, negotiating, or managing related terms in university-company research contracts including representatives of technology transfer, sponsored projects, economic development, university relations/business relations, researchers and research staff.
