Who should attend?
- Researchers negotiating or entering into research or consultancy-research contracts with business, industry and government partners;
- Those who wish to publish a book or book chapter and a publishing agreement is needed.
Topics to be presented and discussed:
- Negotiating Non-Standard Commonwealth Agreements – the importance of understanding the principles of non-standard contracts and agreements to retain your rights to Intellectual Property (IP).
- Book or chapter contracts – does your contract ensure IP stays with you or the university? How important is it that IP stays with you? What clause should your book/chapter contract have?
- Research consultancy contracts for work done outside the university (e.g., for work done for NSWDET). Will the contract allow you to publish the findings? How can the university help in arranging contracts and funding accounts?
