Taking cues from the University of Minnesota’s MN-IP program, The University at Buffalo has created UB SWIFT — Sponsorship With Industry Focused Terms — an option to sponsor research at UB through an agreement including preferred licensing terms for IP resulting from the project.  The UB SWIFT approach allows both entities to set research and licensing terms at the project planning stage, providing financial certainty for both parties, eliminating ongoing and costly negotiations and drastically reducing transaction time.

Reaction from industry has been overwhelmingly positive, and that’s why Technology Transfer Tactics, in partnership with University-Industry Engagement Advisor, is sponsoring this valuable webinar that will dissect the UB Swift model and offer you guidance on how to incorporate their best practices into your future partnership negotiations: Case Study of the University at Buffalo UB Swift Program: Drafting Sponsored Research Agreements with Industry-Focused Terms, scheduled for February 21.
