Webinar: Other Research Results (ORR)

October 12, 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.


Sponsored research produces results in a variety of forms. Other Research Results (ORR) includes tangible (TORR) and intangible (IORR) results of a sponsored research project that are not patentable or copyrightable. Intellectual property rights in ORR may be difficult to pin down and protect. This session will review who and why ORR should be distinguished from other types of intellectual property and how the parties should approach ORR in an industry sponsored research agreement.
