- Intellectual Property and Tech Transfer Workgroup
- Research Project Support Costs Workgroup
- Streamlining Administrative Requirements Workgroup
In 2017, a formal working group began conducting monthly calls to advance discussions on IP and technology transfer, reimbursement of research operating costs, and how to streamline administrative requirements. These discussions led to a May 16, 2018 meeting supported by the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine’s (NASEM) Government University Industry Research Roundtable (GUIRR). Among the goals of the meeting was to engage the broader community of nonprofit funders and research institutions in these discussions and to demonstrate the potential benefits of a broad, ongoing partnership between nonprofit funders and research institutions.
