UIDP Academy: Contract Accords Workshop

January 20, 2016 @ 12:30 pm - January 21, 2016 @ 11:30 am MST

The UIDP’s Contract Accords are one of our most popular and referenced resources. Join leading contract negotiators at a Contract Accords Workshop designed to guide participants through 15 elements of a sponsored research agreement.

The UIDP’s roots are embedded in increasing understanding and illumination of how university-industry (U-I) research agreements can be effectively negotiated. Our Contract Accords tackle significant issues affecting sponsored research agreements and provide practical guidance and detailed reference material to help universities and companies understand each other’s perspectives, understand the preferential and legal constraints they each face and address challenges in negotiating these agreements.

At this workshop, in addition to a detailed exploration of the Accords, workshop presenters will also host a “You Asked For It” session where attendees can ask specific questions on how to address real-world negotiation challenges they face in their workplaces.

This UIDP Academy event is scheduled immediately prior to the UIDP Project Summit in January. Attendance is limited so register early.

    UIDP members say our conferences are a primary avenue to share approaches, collaborate while establishing important connections, and solve contemporary partnership challenges. UIDP relies on member organizations to provide host facilities and support in-person conferences. Most conference sites are secured years in advance.
