NFRI Workshop [November 7, 2018]
The Nonprofit Funder -Research Institution (NFRI) partnership hosted its second workshop to advance discussions on IP and technology transfer, reimbursement of research operating costs and how to streamline administrative requirements. Like the first meeting, the second meeting was also 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 the work conducted to date and to consider the possible benefits of a broad, ongoing partnership between nonprofit funders and research institutions.
Presentations and materials for both meetings and related working group efforts can be found on the NFRI webpage. The working group is continuing its monthly calls. Subgroups continue to work on the topics described above through the subcommittees listed below and will engage the broader community in these efforts.
