7.16 - Non-Governmental Contracts - Industrial

On behalf of the university, the ORSP reviews and negotiates all contracts, including industrial agreements. Industrial agreements often require negotiations with the industrial sponsor, especially regarding the rights to data and intellectual property. PIs/PDs considering contract work with industrial sponsors should contact the ORSP early in the process. The ORSP has templates for industrial agreements if such are needed.
