February 2018 Topic: Know-How
This month, we will discuss the often ambiguous topic of know-how and how it’s handled (or not) in I/U agreements. I/U perspectives on this topic are influenced by a variety of factors including the type of project, the parties’ expectations, other practical considerations, as well as policies and law. The interplay between know-how, publication, confidentiality, and IP creates a maze that is difficult to negotiate. Registrants will be able to share experiences and strategies in the open discussion part of the webinar.
Elaine Brock is President and Senior Partner at Contracts, Compliance, and Conflict of Interest Authority, LLC, where she provides advice and counsel to universities, nonprofits, and businesses on research-related issues. Elaine serves as Project Manager for UIDP’s Contract Accords.
