Strategies for Managing Confidential Information

Guidance for researchers on the appropriate use of confidential information

From the conception of new research partnership to maintaining existing ones, confidential information is an integral and sensitive part of all stages of collaborative research. In a breakout session hosted during UIDP Face2Face, participants described a need for training researchers on managing confidential information and the risks involved. While many researchers love to talk about their work, it is important to communicate an understanding of what information must be disclosed and at what stage of the relationship.

This project seeks to provide researchers guidance on the various types of confidential information from both the university and industry side, when to involve an NDA/CDA, and managing the risks involved when proprietary information is included.
