UIDP Contracting Forum

November 13, 2017 @ 8:00 am - November 14, 2017 @ 5:30 pm EST

Discover the keys to successful U-I research contract negotiations at the Contracting Forum, a UIDP Academy event designed for industry and academic contracting professionals.

Scottsdale, AZ

The UIDP Contracting Summit is a once in a decade opportunity to meet with contract negotiators from both academic and corporate sectors and learn about contemporary issues and strategies for advancing the time to agreement. At this event, which has both introductory and advanced tracks, a large, diverse set of topics will be covered with presenters from universities such as Georgia Tech, MIT, Stanford, and UVa, as well as companies such as Boeing, Deere, Sanofi, and Varian Medical.

The Contracting Forum is part of UIDP’s ongoing efforts to remove barriers to speedy negotiations for university-industry sponsored research agreements. Although much of this work to date is captured in the Contract Accords, the Forum will provide academic and industry participants with new in-depth information regarding University policy, procedures and culture while giving our University participants an opportunity to learn more about what is important to different industry sectors.


Registration is now open and will be limited to the first 200 participants.

All non-member registrations are subject to review and approval and may be canceled.
