MATTER Workshop: What to Know When Negotiating Sponsored Research Agreement

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 like these can affect the length of negotiations as well as represent one of the largest impediments to formalizing research agreements. This clinic will help startups navigate through the complexities of startup-sponsored research agreements as well as the entire process of negotiating such agreements. Dr. Emily Miao will provide a step-by-step discussion of key provisions of a sample research agreement(s) as well as identify factors that prolong the negotiation process and offer strategies on how to avoid them.
