Research Teaming Agreements

Research Teaming Agreements:

A collaborating institution may require the execution of a Teaming Agreement (TA) prior to the preparation and/or submission of a proposal to the Prime Funding Agency. The purpose of a TA is to indicate general agreement on the nature of the working relationship. Teaming Agreements can also set forth basic terms related to the ownership of intellectual property, the ownership of any background Intellectually property,  dispute resolution provisions and termination provisions as well as other programmatic issues such as data sharing that relate solely to the preparation of the proposal. The (TA) does not involve the transfer of funds nor should it include terms and conditions for the conduct of the research project if awarded.
