About the Series

UIDP Academy presents a ten-part webinar series on contemporary issues and opportunities for effective negotiation of industry-sponsored research agreements (ISRAs). This series is strategically designed to offer seasoned contracting professionals, as well as novices and others who just want to learn more about the general issues affecting ISRA negotiations, an opportunity to discuss a broad range of contracting matters.

Information and ideas from leading subject matter experts are presented on tried, true, and new approaches, with opportunities for Q&A and presenter interaction. When appropriate, presenters will use the UIDP Contract Accords as practical guidance to help participants understand issues and collaborate more effectively.
