What It’s All About
Nonprofit foundations and charities can be a critical source of research support. Increasingly, foundations are taking a more assertive approach to managing the intellectual property (IP) that arises from funded projects. How can technology transfer professionals navigate these changing and challenging expectations from foundation grant-makers? Panel topics will include understanding the foundation-side rationale and their interest in more extensive IP management, strategies for negotiating IP language with foundations, and avoiding conflict between the tech transfer office and other academic stakeholders. Participants will take away a host of best practices for negotiating with foundations.
