Industry and Government-Sponsored Contracts
Sponsored research contracts provide your company with specific deliverables and preferential terms to the intellectual property developed.
A service agreement is used when a McGill employee renders a service and provides the results to a client. The difference between a service agreement and a research agreement is that no intellectual input or value-added is provided by McGill and no publishable results are expected. As a result, the sponsor retains all rights to the intellectual property provided by the client and owns the results. Confidentiality of the client’s information is typically perpetual.
