New Publication Industry-Sponsored Research Management Helps Universities Offset Cuts to Federal Funding by Building Corporate Partnerships

New publication Industry-Sponsored Research Management helps universities offset cuts to federal funding by building corporate partnerships

As the likelihood of deep cuts to federal funding from NIH and other key agencies continues to rise, forward-looking research universities aren’t simply wringing their hands and waiting for the axe to fall.

A growing number of schools have been working diligently to increase their research funding from industry partnerships, and that effort has taken on new urgency given the news out of Washington.

"Expanding research partnerships with industry has become a critical imperative for universities facing already-tight budgets and the prospect of further cuts in the coming years."

David Schwartz, CEO and Publisher

That’s where Industry-Sponsored Research Management comes in. Launched in March by Atlanta-based 2Market Information Inc., it’s the first and only publication devoted to helping universities build and manage their portfolios of corporate-sponsored research agreements.

Each monthly issue of Industry-Sponsored Research Management contains high-level strategies and best practices designed to help research managers bring in more industry research contracts, negotiate deals effectively, build lasting relationships with corporate sponsors, protect valuable intellectual property, and ensure airtight compliance practices.

The just-released June issue of this practical publication offers a good illustration, featuring these articles filled with expert guidance:

                * Turn ‘sponsors’ into ‘affiliates’ to establish deeper industry ties                 
                * Faculty start-ups can make good research sponsors with proper COI safeguards               
                * Pitt’s leased lab space caps two-year effort to mitigate effects of IRS rules               
                * NJIT assembles custom teams to address industry’s specific problems               
                * Multi-school Facebook master agreement illustrates opportunities and challenges               
                * VA Tech business engagement center reflects culture shift toward industry sponsors
