Webinar: Confidentiality & Publications

August 17, 2016 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm EDT

Save big by registering for the full series!

academy-blueThis UIDP Academy series presents information and ideas from leading subject matter experts on tried, true, and new approaches to U-I contracting, with opportunities for Q&A and presenter interaction. Presenters will use the UIDP Contract Accords as practical guidance to help participants understand issues and collaborate more effectively.

Topic: Confidentiality & Publications

Mutually agreeable treatment of confidential information and publication in industry sponsored research agreements requires that the parties have a clear understanding of the research project and a good working relationship with each other. This session will explore how universities and industry can benefit from understanding their differing perspectives and how confidential and proprietary information can be treated so that agreements are workable and meet the needs of both parties. The session will also discuss publication clauses that consider the anticipated results of the project, the parties’ intentions or sensitivities about publication, the impact of publication on intellectual property rights, dependency of publication on disclosure of confidential information; and the regulatory issues related to publication.
