Working at the University-Industry Interface: Effective Strategies for Active Researchers

April 25 @ 1:00 pm - 2:15 pm

Join us on Wednesday, April 25th to learn about managing intellectual property issues.

Session 6: Managing Intellectual Property (IP) Issues

Agenda highlights

  • Identifying and protecting background intellectual property
  • Setting parameters around foreground intellectual property
    • Assignment and ownership
    • Protection and rights
  • Negotiating an exclusive or non-exclusive license

Get a unique look at how to create better research partnerships between corporations and universities.

The UIDP ( is pleased to announce a new webinar series developed jointly and offered with Academic Impressions (AI).

A shifting landscape of federal research funding and declining corporate research and development budgets make university and industry partnerships highly attractive for both sides; however, opposing values and interests can make such partnerships especially tricky to manage.

Join us for a series of webinars that will guide you through the nuances and complexities of these research partnerships. Over seven sessions, we’ll carefully cover the most critical considerations for creating win-win relationships:

    1. Navigating the benefits and challenges
    2. Managing expectations and creating relationships
    3. Establishing contacts and handling proprietary information
    4. Preparing proposals and budgets
    5. Addressing compliance and contracting issues
    6. Negotiating intellectual property (IP)
    7. Leveraging government involvement

Multiple Perspectives

You can’t effectively learn about successful partnerships unless you can hear from both sides. This is a unique opportunity to gain access to insights and best practices from leading experts at research universities and leading global corporations.  They’ll leverage the unique perspective of University-Industry Demonstration Partnership’s (UIDP) research and best practices, as well as their own personal experience.
