Collaboration is a time-honored academic tradition.
The Office of Technology Transfer (OTT) has noted a significant increase in invention disclosures involving non-SU innovators. That scenario may result in multiple entities (often the innovators’ employers) owning the invention. OTT manages the logistics of shared ownership.
Common agreements for collaborations are:
- Materials Transfer Agreements (MTA)
- Inter Institutional Agreements (IIA)
- Non-Disclosure Agreements (NDA/CDA) – PDF Template of SU NDA/CDA
- Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR)/Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR)
