Non-disclosure agreements are used to protect proprietary or confidential information from use or further dissemination by the recipient of the information. In the research commercialization arena, these documents are much more than pro-forma. When working with industry partners who may be collaborators or potential licensees, poorly drafted NDAs can put your valuable IP in grave danger. 

Given the huge stakes, it’s imperative that universities understand the implications of a poorly drafted and executed NDA – and make sure these documents anticipate every twist and turn along the way.

Join Tech Transfer Central and attorney Satya S. Narayan of GCA Law Partners for a detailed and practical webinar filled with critical guidance on drafting and negotiating NDAs to effectively protect your IP in a range of scenarios.

Non-Disclosure Agreements in University Research and Commercialization: Drafting Strategies for Maximum IP Protection

Ms. Narayan will discuss critical issues associated with NDAs in university research and commercialization such as:

  • Understand NDAs, what their purpose is, and when they are needed
  • Unique challenges faced by academic institutions
  • Best practices for working with faculty to ensure the effectiveness of an NDA
  • A solid review of how to draft the most critical elements of NDAs
  • Understanding the negotiation process and using it effectively to secure protection for your IP
