Best Practices in Forming and Managing Industry-University Partnerships includes these four detailed programs (click on the titles for more details):

Best Practices for Drafting University-Industry Partnership R&D Agreements. Partnerships can foster faster, more efficient innovation, they are not without their challenges. Only proper contract design can help you to avoid a financial sinkhole, loss of intellectual property, questionable research results, and damaging conflicts among researchers, industry representatives, and your TTO.  

That’s why we’ve tapped two experts to provide you with expert guidance on drafting an R&D agreement that will attract industry and drive your research projects forward while also preventing the kinds of problems that can wreak havoc with your involved faculty and damage relationships between you and your researchers — and with industry partners.

Managing Conflicts of Interest in Large-Scale Industry Partnerships. To help you navigate the pitfalls while ensuring vibrant and business-savvy collaborations, we’ve tapped a team of attorneys with a wealth of experience on this front. They will update you on important recent COI developments as well as provide practical strategies for tackling the broad spectrum of COI issues you will face and must address in today’s large-scale industry partnership initiatives.

The Anatomy of a Great Industry-University Partnership. The right partnership will bring not just licensing revenue but critical economic development benefits to your local region as well. This session provides insight on how you can craft equally successful industry partnerships — and grow licensing revenues as well as regional economic benefits for years to come.

New Models of University-Industry Partnership: U Minnesota’s “MN-IP Create” and “Try and Buy” Programs. The University of Minnesota has raised the bar on innovative partnering with its groundbreaking MN-IP Create and MN-IP Try and Buy programs. These programs have dramatically improved the university’s ability to land new sponsored research and licensing deals, and in the process redefined the TTO as a highly sought after partner for corporations. MN-IP Create vastly simplifies the contracting process for sponsored research and employs industry-friendly features like pre-set license terms, exclusive worldwide rights, low royalty rates, and affordable prepayments.
