Encore presentation: How to cultivate and manage research agreements with philanthropic organizations

Published: April 10th, 2018

It used to be that philanthropic organizations offered grants and little in the way of oversight or management of projects. But times have changed, research is big business, and today’s agreements with philanthropic groups present unique issues that can be extremely difficult to manage without the proper terms and stringent reporting systems in place. It may seem counterintuitive coming from a philanthropy standpoint, but each organization has its own unique agenda, contractual must-haves, IP issues, and financial requirements.

Few have dealt with these issues more than Katharine Ku of Stanford University, and she recently shared her experience and best practices with a worldwide audience to rave reviews. Due to the session’s popularity, we are offer an encore presentation of Cultivating, Negotiating, and Managing Research Agreements with Philanthropic Organizations. The recorded program will be aired on May 9 a special 11:00 EDT time to better accommodate our overseas customers. Katharine has years of first-hand experience dealing with research agreements involving non-profits, and in this session she offers a detailed look at the challenges of partnering with philanthropic organizations.
