Papering Partnerships: Navigating Partnered Research

The Legal and Intellectual Property team of Research Services, UCalgary will be presenting in our Faculty on November 3rd at noon. The focus is on enhancing research partnerships, formalizing those partnerships, and "papering" partnerships for successful research engagement.  Please plan to attend, registration is not required:

Wednesday November 3, 12:00pm-1:00pm

Passcode: 424070

For this event on November 3, you are welcome to initially watch an earlier presentation (offered May 2021) by this team (click here to access the recording and/or review attached slides). On Nov. 3, feel free to bring any questions, conundrums and experiences related to partnered research, agreements, etc. for a deeper discussion in this area. This topic is of importance given the many partnerships in our research. 

A few questions, as examples, to be addressed are:

  • What are potential risks within partnerships and research agreements, and what are ways to navigate these risks?
  • What partnership-focused supports are available in the University? 

We anticipate that this will be a highly relevant and practical session.  Please feel free to bring your questions/comments on this important component of research development and implementation.
