Topic: New Contracting Models
For many universities, traditional strategies for negotiating sponsored research and license agreements with industry are not producing the desired results. In response, some universities are developing new models that facilitate industry engagement, catalyze the depth and breadth of collaborative arrangements and accelerate the commercialization of basic and applied research. Join representatives from universities pioneering innovative university-industry collaboration and learn how their new approaches are helping them achieve their academic and research goals.
