The University of Iowa

New Option for Exclusive Research Licensing to Industry

The University of Iowa is offering a new sponsored research option that will provide industry research sponsors pre-negotiated exclusive licenses to innovations resulting from their partnerships with University researchers.  The option is intended to increase the rate of technology transfer to the private sector by streamlining negotiations and defining future financial obligations.

 This option is only available for research agreements with no involvement of federal funds and must be approved by the PI and other UI officials.  For more details, please consult the documents below.
