MATTER Workshop: Intentional IP Strategy for Startups

Negotiating sponsored research agreements can be a challenging process for startups, especially when dealing with indemnification, confidentiality/publication of data, intellectual property, and termination clauses. Complexities such as these can affect the length of negotiations, and this clinic will help startups navigate them and the entire process of negotiating a sponsored research agreement. Emily Miao will provide an overview of key contracting issues in startup-sponsored research contacts as well as identify the factors that prolong the negotiation process and offer strategies on how to avoid them.
