When it comes to matters of regulatory compliance in research, there is no room for error. NIH officials have expressed increasing concern that many universities are not fully honoring their obligations to report inventions, provide confirmatory licenses, and submit utilization reports. These omissions can have a profound effect on future grant awards and puts your faculty and university’s reputation up for debate. And steering your university and its researchers clear of SBIR/STTR compliance and potential misuse of funds charges presents an entirely different but equally important challenge for research administrators and tech transfer managers.   

Fortunately, strong education and airtight monitoring systems can prevent the damaging consequences of non-compliance that can result in a black mark on your university’s reputation – as well as its future research funding.

That’s why we’ve created the Best Practices in University Research and Tech Transfer Compliance distance learning collection. The collection consists of three distance learning programs, complete with all original program materials, filled with expert compliance guidance related to the Bayh-Dole Act, reporting guidelines for iEdison, and SBIR/STTR funding regulations.
