University-Industry Contracting Webinar Series

Attend this series of nine webinars to learn about university-industry (U-I) research contracting from experts in the University Industry Demonstration Partnership (UIDP), the premier organization focused on this topic. Webinar presenters will do a deep dive into some of the most contentious issues in university-industry contracting.

What is the learning value of the series?

This webinar series allows for interaction with experts on sponsored research contracting with extensive Q&A sessions and modern approaches. You will hear from UIDP experts about common clauses, issues of contention, and how to address the challenges of negotiating industry sponsored research agreements. Institutions use the UIDP Contract Accords as practical guidance and detailed reference material to help both parties understand typical issues, address them, and thereby collaborate more effectively.

There is no limit to the number of people who can view the video at one location—invite your team to view and discuss the video together!
