What Is A Cooperative Research And Development Agreement

The areas of research we are interested in include autonomous systems and robotics, synthetic biology, energy, quantum computers, advanced electronics and sensors, as well as cybersecurity. If you think that a collaborative research and development project is benefiting your company and our research and development efforts, contact us first at the [email protected] address. The terms and conditions of our CRADA agreement can be reached here. Lincoln Laboratory enters CRADAs when collaborative research supports its mission and program objectives. Partnering with us as part of a CRADA can help your business achieve commercial and scientific success by providing access to our unique technologies, technical know-how and facilities, including Defense Microelectronics Activity`s certified/reliable microelectronics lab and the STRIVE center used in bioengineering research and development. CRADA offers non-federal staff the opportunity to negotiate an exclusive or non-exclusive license for any CRADA Subject Invention resulting from the research. CRADA is the only agreement that authorizes an IP licensing option developed during a collaborative research project. The laboratory can only provide technical resources such as personnel, services, facilities and expertise for a CRADA program. The counterparty must provide financial and in-kind benefits. In-kind contributions are non-solvency contributions from work, property or services. All CRADAs require the business partner to provide some kind of in-kind contribution to support the collaborative nature of the research. If you are a researcher with the ODU, you submit a form for applications for unfunded contracts as well as an appendix to a draft contract submitted by the other party.

The ODU does not have its own model for CRADAs, as each government authority generally uses an agency-specific CRADA model, which can be used as a starting point for discussions. CRADA is an agreement under which the FDA laboratory contributes to the realization of certain research or development efforts in personnel, services, facilities, equipment or other resources, but not funding. The CRADA partner is involved in all necessary funding for the project, as well as staff, services, facilities, equipment or other resources. Research and development cooperation agreements (CRADAs) are formal research and development agreements between a federal authority (in the form of a government laboratory) and one or more non-federal parties for collaborative research and development in each area that is consistent with the federal agency`s mission. CRADAs encourage the creation of teams to solve technological and industrial problems for the benefit of the country. The government provides personnel, services, facilities, equipment, intellectual property or other resources with or without reimbursement to the non-federal party. However, the government is not authorized to make funds available to the non-federal party. The non-federal party, on the other hand, may provide personnel, services, facilities, equipment, intellectual property, resources or other resources for the research or development efforts indicated.
