UIDP Academy: FAR and Away: IP in Triple Helix Projects

April 2 @ 8:00 am - 11:45 am

Confirmed Presenters

Elizabeth Adams, Princeton
Elaine Brock, UIDP
Bob Hardy, COGR

Workshop Overview


Government-industry-university (“triple helix”) projects are trending, and becoming an increasingly important component of U-I engagement. Intellectual property rights represent a common interest and concern for all three parties under these projects. This session will focus on IP terms and expectations that include government, industry, and university participants at different stages of triple helix projects—solicitation, agreement negotiation, award management/closeout and potential licensing/commercialization. The practical considerations as well as nuances of IP clauses in various cross-sector agreements related to federally-supported projects will be discussed. This workshop requires basic knowledge of intellectual property-related clauses of the federal acquisition regulation (FAR). The workshop also assumes general familiarity with U.S. patent and copyright law, as well as typical university and industry policies regarding intellectual property and contracts.


This highly participatory workshop will benefit attendees through presentations and panel discussions by academic and industry clinical research leaders. Presenters will highlight common challenges that hinder rapid trial activation, describe novel approaches taken to address such challenges and share best practices that have successfully reduced activation timelines and improved trial performance.

Agenda Highlights

The workshop will focus on these primary areas:

  1. Value Proposition for Large University-Company Partnerships. Examination of the value proposition for both parties. While the benefits can be significant, the effort and resources required to build a successful partnership need to be considered.
  2. Creating Large Value Partnerships. How partnerships are initiated and what ingredients are needed to build a successful large value partnership. How do these partnerships vary and what are the key differences between large strategic partnerships and other partnerships? What is the potential role of government in forming large partnerships?
  3. Maintaining Large Value Partnerships. Once formed, what university and company structures and processes are required to sustain the partnership. How are changes in university or company priorities managed? How are changes in leadership handled and effective dialogue maintained between the academic and corporate cultures?

During the workshop key questions that will be addressed include:

  • How are partnerships initiated? Who connects with whom?
  • How long does formation take? Do existing relationships scale or is an entirely different model needed.
  • What is necessary to keep the partnership ongoing? Dedicated staff?
  • Multiple partnerships? Does each one get easier or once accomplished is there an intentional degree of exclusivity?
  • What is the potential role of government in facilitating the formation of large value partnerships?

Who Should Attend

This workshop is targeted to corporate and academic representatives with responsibility for identifying, sponsoring, or day to day management of large value university-company partnerships. This includes representatives of Technology R&D, Economic Development, University Relations, Faculty, or anyone interested in leading practices in large scale partnerships.

In order to maximize direct engagement among attendees and speakers, attendance is limited.
