The all-new Survey of Sponsored Research Agreements between the Private Sector and Higher Education includes data and in-depth commentary and analysis based on extensive survey results from 19 offices of sponsored research (or offices with similar responsibilities), largely from major universities in the United States and Canada.
This one-of-a-kind resource provides a rich set of benchmarks and data to compare against your own sponsored research activity. It’s jam-packed with dozens of easy to scan charts and figures displaying critical data you can’t find in any other publication.
Take a look at just a small sample of the benchmarks offered in this valuable study:
- What scientific fields account for the most sponsored research agreements?
- How do universities and other research institutions market themselves to the private sector?
- How often do those involved in sponsored research efforts experience conflicts of interest and what do they do about them?
- How long does it take to negotiate contracts?
- Where do deal proposals originate – the university or the corporation?
- What is the role of advisory boards in the sponsored research office?
- How are the results of sponsored research agreements evaluated?
- How frequently do sponsored research offices have disputes in research sponsors?
- How common is it for sponsors to seek delays in publication?
- What are the characteristics of information flow between sponsors and institutions?
You’ll receive answers to these questions and much, much more – detailed in more than 125 data tables!
