UIDP Contracting Webinar SeriesNegotiation of research agreements is an integral aspect of University-Industry partnerships. Successful research agreements ensure that the interests and needs of both parties are accommodated.

Research projects often involve the use or development of software and associated technology to achieve a variety of project objectives. Software may be developed according to design specifications provided by the sponsor or created or used by a researcher as a means of solving a problem. Contract terms may be needed to address the development, ownership, use, and modification of software as applicable to the statement of work. Software rights are complex but well-drafted terms help to prevent misunderstandings and disputes between parties. This webinar provides a summary of software-specific terms and issues that arise in negotiations between universities and industry sponsors in sponsored research agreements.
