Mini-Seminar: Creating Effective University-Industry Collaboration through Agreement Management Tools, Tuesday, September 30, 2014 -  Chemistry and Physics Building, Room 303

To meet the challenges of today’s changing and global knowledge economy, industrial and academic researchers must collaborate. Many academic investigators find it valuable to work with industry to advance their research agenda and to ensure relevance of their scholarly pursuits.

UT Arlington is in the forefront of academic and industry research in North Texas, with our resources and faculty among the most innovative of any Texas University.

However, like many researchers, we face our own challenges in making the necessary connections and in dealing with barriers and differences to create effective, high value collaborations.

We designed UTA Research Administration Agreement Management resources to provide tools and guidance to help jumpstart sponsored research, research project and sponsored services agreements. This seminar will provide attendees with effective guidance toward their goals.

During this session, UTA Agreements Manager Dan Vincenzo will:

• Provide an overview of common university-industry perspectives, agreements and scenarios, as well as guides to key agreement concepts and terms that you can use to help expedite your research and service projects

• Help you avoid delays and slow-downs in your project agreement pre-award, through pro-active interaction ahead of time, on key concepts and terms

• Explain pros and cons of the latest models for university-industry collaborations

• Illustrate how using the right tools can lead to easier agreement set-up

Ample time is included for questions and interaction. Be prepared to bring input and suggestions on additional resources that could make our resources more useful for you, and your academic and industry contacts. For more information, please contact Daniel Vincenzo

To RSVP for this event, please contact Caitlin Johnson.

RCR Institute Offers Certification Opportunity Specifically for Students
