New Contracting Models (2019)
For many universities and their industry partners traditional approaches to negotiating sponsored research and license agreements may not produce the desired results. New models that are intended to streamline university industry agreement and promote more and better university-industry partnerships have emerged over the last few years. This session describes a few of these approaches for dealing with the results of industry sponsored research agreements including public dedication of IP, and pre-negotiated agreements geared to various types of project such as the MN-IP program, and Cornell’s new Gateway to Partnership program. Practical considerations and related issues are also discussed.
