UIDP Academy: Contemporary Contracting Approaches

March 24 @ 8:00 am - 12:00 pm

This workshop takes place immediately prior to the
UIDP30 conference in College Station, Texas

Contemporary Contracting Approaches

Companies and universities are seeking better ways to strike collaborations between the sectors. There are a number of relatively new contracting approaches that have been adopted and this session will provide an overview of alternative contracting approaches including:

  1. Contracting Continuum – Georgia Tech has adopted and promoted the Contract Continuum as a way to give potential industry sponsors a better understanding of how the university enters into agreements with companies.
  2. Monetized Foreground IP Models – such as MN-IP and Penn State
  3. Industry Consulting Done via University Agreement – Faculty members in the US have been allowed to consult one day a week or 20% of their time for external parties such as industry. This session will explore how some universities have developed programs that allow this consulting time to be brought in house and compensate faculty members through a university agreement with the company.
  4. Public Dedication of IP – an approach being used by firms such as Facebook, Intel, and VMWare that stipulates that foreground IP generated by company-sponsored work is placed in the public domain. UIDP recently completed a quick guide on this topic.
  5. Selling Excess Capacity – review of what universities need to consider when deciding whether and how to offer services and capacities of unique facilities to companies as users.
