Information about Organization
UIDP is an organization of universities and companies who seek to build a stronger relationship between these parties. UIDP provides a unique forum for university and industry representatives to meet and discuss operational and strategic issues such as contracting, intellectual property, and compliance matters. These conversations might otherwise never take place, and they serve to help university representatives better understand the culture and constraints of their industry counterparts, and vice versa. This initiative is supported by the Government-University-Industry Research Roundtable (GUIRR). Learn more about UIDP.
Negotiation Agreement Workshop
The next Industry-University Negotiation Agreement Workshop will be held in conjunction with the Fall 2014 UIDP Meeting at MIT. This workshop series showcases leading approaches and strategies for negotiating sponsored research agreements in specific sectors or circumstances. This series provides an excellent training opportunity for newer and experienced university and industry negotiators alike. Participants gain valuable insight and skills that are relevant to their experiences and responsibilities. Participants also discuss new and bold approaches for high value university – industry partnerships and strategies based on the UIDP Contract Accords.
The Workshop will address projects involving multiple parties that include universities, industry sponsors, non-profit organizations, and/or the federal government. Through panel discussions the Workshop will address a variety of configurations such as research centers, consortia, and multi-sponsored projects focused on the development of technical solutions for the healthcare industry. The Workshop will provide strategies and best practices to facilitate timelier conclusion of the negotiations required to establish a complex, multiparty project. Each Workshop is limited to approximately twenty – five (25) participants in order to maximize the amount of dialogue that takes place during the workshop.
