Contracting Webinar Series

Contracting Webinar Series Header

UIDP’s comprehensive, 10-part contracting webinar series for members and non-members illuminates contemporary issues and opportunities for effective negotiation of industry-sponsored research agreements (ISRAs).

The contracting webinar series is strategically designed to offer novice-to-seasoned contracting professionals insight on a broad range of contracting issues. The basic sessions are specifically developed for researchers (from industry bench scientists and students through full professors) and those very new to ISRAs. The intermediate/advanced contracting webinars provide background and address current strategies used by companies and universities to arrive at a successful outcome.

Purchase the whole contracting webinar series (just $1,900 for non-members; $900 for members) or buy individual one-hour webinars targeting your needs. UIDP members must log in to access member savings.

Quick and successful negotiation of ISRAs is one of the key objectives of university-industry collaborations. UIDP and its members have invested significant time and energy to develop a robust and comprehensive portfolio of contract accords to assist research administrators, researchers, and other key personnel in understanding and negotiating the various aspects and clauses of ISRAs. Each contracting webinar comes with the associated slide deck and related contract accords to enhance and extend learning.
