This webinar benefits all audiences including technology transfer professionals and administrative support staff who review federally sponsored research agreements and provide feedback to licensing professionals. This webinar also benefits sponsor research staff who provide awareness of long-term impacts such as negotiations and terms on intellectual property.
Technology licensing professionals may need to pay closer attention to federal award terms and conditions negotiated by their sponsored research offices. The Council on Governmental Relations (COGR) and the Association of American Universities (AAU) recently co-authored a report based on data gathered by the Federal Demonstration Partnership (FDP). The report documents increased restrictions on publication, information dissemination and access to research projects by foreign nationals in the terms and conditions of research awards to U.S. universities from federal government sponsors.
