Stanford University Research Agreement
Sponsored Research Agreements (SRAs) provide the conditions for externally funded research at Stanford. ICO negotiates SRAs when companies fund projects at Stanford and apply for license rights on the resulting intellectual property or research reports. For more information, see our model sponsored research agreements. ICO also deals with changes to industry-sponsored research agreements. ICO negotiates and signs sponsored research and associated research agreements with industry, as well as data transfers and material transfers with all types of companies. However, industrial clinical trial agreements are executed by the RMG at the School of Medicine. ICO negotiates a large number of research contracts, ranging from multi-year master`s research contracts covering many projects to minor one-off research projects with large and small companies. ICO also handles agreements related to partner programs in the sector. ICO negotiates sponsored research agreements when a company makes funds available to the university for a given project and targets intellectual property licensing rights or detailed research reports. When a company provides financing without getting rights in exchange, it`s often a gift. Cooperation between Stanford faculties and corporate researchers enables scientists with common interests to pursue common research goals. Cooperation agreements are used when the parties cooperate and each party has faced its own costs.
Stanford`s research and purchasing offices can answer questions and help researchers reach agreements for incoming or outgoing data: Stanford University attaches great importance to facilitating the transfer of technology from its research labs to the private sector, where it can be applied in a way that benefits the general population. This is why the University wishes to promote cooperation and cooperation with institutions such as other universities, research institutes, public laboratories and private sector partners. One way to do this is to make unique experts and academic research institutes available to these other bodies. Such efforts must not undermine the research priorities of the university faculty that developed and maintained these institutions. However, due to the highly specialized nature of Stanford`s expertise and facilities, it is sometimes possible to have enough time and capacity to support the research efforts of other universities, research organizations, or companies. When this situation occurs, Stanford`s academic departments, schools and laboratories will be able to finalize BCP to make certain research resources available to outside users, if all of the following criteria are met, and with relevant administrative checks, as indicated below: a Stanford directive entitled Preparation, Review and Submission of Sponsored Project Proposals of June 21, 1979 discouraged participation in research between Stanford and private companies (and other third parties). Since then, U.S. industries have increasingly acted as partners and cooperation partners with academic researchers. The exchange of ideas and research techniques between the private and voluntary sectors has proved beneficial for both sides and has given rise to many important scientific developments. Many of Stanford`s academic research institutes are unique in their combined expertise and instrumentation and could be used in the process to support industry in a way that is compatible with the university`s primary teaching, research, and utility missions.
This Directive, which replaces the Research Participation Agreements clause of the 1979 Sponsored Project Proposals Directive, authorises and defines the occasional use of Stanford`s research capabilities for external purposes in a manner consistent with Stanford`s primary missions. . . .
