  • Communication Strategies for International Collaborations Throughout the Sponsored Projects Lifecycle (SPL)

    Global diversity and international collaboration has become vital to the Research Community. These new collaborations require extra thought, planning, and sensitivity starting at the proposal submission stage and lasting through the final compliance obligations.

    90 Minutes: Global diversity and international collaboration has become vital to the Research Community. These new collaborations require extra thought, planning, and sensitivity starting at the proposal submission stage and lasting through the final compliance obligations.  Federal regulations and grant terminology may not be common place for institutions in developing countries.  Research-intensive non-US institutions may have their own culture when negotiating contracts that require heightened sensitivity from US counterparts.  This webinar will focus on the important role of communication, both verbal and written, throughout the lifecycle of a sponsored project.

    Audience: anyone working on proposal development and submission, negotiating awards, and/or collecting financial documentation with International Collaborators.

    Handouts will be available 24 hours before the live webinar.

  • Data Transfer and Use Agreements (DTUAs)

    In the current era of Big Data, sharing of and access to research data have become integral to our faculty’s research programs.

    90 Minutes: In the current era of Big Data, sharing of and access to research data have become integral to our faculty’s research programs.  Federal agencies have recognized the importance of resource and data sharing to enhance the ultimate value of Federally-funded research and have implemented (and continue to implement) various data sharing policies and requirements.  Many types of research data may be shared freely between research institutions; however, in certain scenarios or for certain types of data, the involved parties must first enter into an agreement to govern the transfer and use of the data. 

    This session will cover the factors to be considered in determining whether an agreement is needed, the core elements of a Data Transfer and Use Agreement (DTUA), and additional terms that should be added for a few common data types.  This session will also touch upon regulatory developments that are leading to increases in the volume of this type of agreement.

    Level: Overview

    Pre-requisites: Participants should have a basic understanding of agreements.

    Handouts will be available 24 hours before the live webinar.

    Participants will learn:

    • Considerations in determining whether an agreement is needed in order to share data and, if so, how to determine what additional terms may be needed based on the type of data being shared.
    • About the core elements of a data sharing agreement.
    • About regulatory developments that impact the current state of data sharing agreements.

  • Understanding the Administratively Complex and High-risk Business Objective of Cost Sharing

    This webinar will explore the many elements of cost sharing, ranging from the pre-award, often strategic decision to engage in cost sharing from different methods to handle the post award management of cost sharing, offering the participant a lifecycle view of cost sharing.

    90 Minutes: Cost sharing represents an administratively complex and high-risk business objective. This webinar will explore the many elements of cost sharing, ranging from the pre-award, often strategic decision to engage in cost sharing from different methods to handle the post award management of cost sharing, offering the participant a lifecycle view of cost sharing. 

    The webinar will touch on basic concepts such as what constitutes cost sharing at the proposal stage and federal policies and guidelines related to cost sharing, but will primarily be focused on more complicated concepts, including the impacts of cost sharing on an institution, the functional areas cost sharing touches outside of sponsored research (e.g., finance and budget), and the weighing of strategic interests against traditional compliance when entering into a cost share agreement.

    Level: Intermediate

    Pre-requisites: The webinar will touch on basic concepts such as what constitutes cost sharing at the proposal stage and federal policies and guidelines related to cost sharing, but will primarily be focused on more complicated concepts, so a general understanding of cost sharing will be helpful.

    Handouts will be available 2 hours before the live webinar.
