Contract Accords (2020)
Understanding issues in university-industry sponsored research contracts
Each Accord identifies a common area that requires clarity and forethought in U-I sponsored research contracts. The Accords provide practical guidance and insight into how parties can address topics in mutually beneficial ways.
The Contract Accords are open to the public and can be accessed below. Please refer to the copyright and disclosure statement for UIDP Contract Accords usage and rights. Some of the Contract Accords have undergone revision since their original publication in 2012-2013. The Accords here are the result of a 2020 comprehensive review and revision process.
