These Contract Accords for University-Industry Sponsored Research Agreements were developed by a strategically assembled and dedicated team of research administration professionals from academia and industry. The Contract Accords address commonly recognized areas that can delay or derail projects, and typically require additional time for resolution. The objective of these Contract Accords is for each party to gain a greater understanding of how these topics can be adequately addressed and allow for mutual benefit to each party during the negotiation of sponsored research agreements. These Contract Accords reflect the consensus and best practices of university and industry UIDP representatives and continue to evolve.

This Researcher Guidebook addresses the opportunities and challenges unique to institution and industry collaborations, specifically targeting active researchers (at all career stages) and is the product of the collective expertise of the UIDP's member representatives. The guidebook is divided into two parts: Part 1 is dedicated to the Institutional Researcher; Part 2 is dedicated to the Industrial Researcher. These two companion portions of the guidebook together create a strategic tool to promote greater understanding of the issues that face both parties in order to facilitate more effective collaborations for mutual benefit. Reading this guidebook should lead the researcher to ask the right questions, both of the organization and of the potential collaborator, to determine whether to proceed with a particular collaboration.
Hard copy booklets are available to order; for pricing and ordering information, contact email@example.com. The guidebook may also be purchased as an ebook from Amazon.
