Overcoming Barriers to Collaborative Research: Report of a Workshop 9:45 Perspectives from the Sectors: "The Value of Partnering"   Industry: Daniel Vapnek, formerly Senior Vice-President for Research, Amgen   Academe: Paul Christiano, Provost, Carnegie Mellon University 11:00 MODULE ONE: "Innovative Approaches to Managing the Intersection of Interests in Collaborative Research Relationships"   The challenge for this section of the agenda is to identify and to feature real cases of collaboration that draw focus to the thorny issues that plague partnerships, and that reveal successful approaches to managing those trouble spots. The cases have been selected to illustrate several very different structural approaches to forming partnerships, alliances, or other types of collaborative arrangements.   Case Study I: Consortia   Grant Brewen, CEO, Biotech Research and Development Consortium (BRDC), Peoria, Ill. 11:30 Q&A, Group Discussion 12:00 Lunch Buffet 1:30 Case Study II: Incubator   Glenn Doell, Director, Incubator Program, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute and Vice-Chairman, National Business Incubation Association   Case Study III: Government-funded Research Center   Kristina Johnson, Director, Optoelectronic Computing Systems Center, University of Colorado, Boulder 3:00 Q&A, Group Discussion 4:00 Breakout Discussions

Overcoming Barriers to Collaborative Research: Report of a Workshop Tuesday March 24, 1998 8:30 MODULE TWO: "Proprietary Impediments to Research Partnerships—Intellectual Property, Patenting, Royalty Rights, and Reach-Through Provisions"   While formulaic solutions to these problems do not exist, templates to address each of these issues are relatively plentiful. In this session, speakers will lead discussion of prototypes they and members of the audience have used in negotiating and managing research partnerships with outside parties, highlighting the shortfalls of each; they will discuss the informal or ad hoc solutions they have discovered through experience; and they will direct discussion to options for improved partnering. Speakers and cases have been selected to illuminate differences encountered across disciplines (e.g., biomedical vs. info tech) and across types of institutions.   Opening Remarks   Stephen Atkinson, Director of Licensing and Technology Management, OraVax 9:30 Sectoral Variants:   Prototype I: Biomedical Research   Richard Koehn, Vice-President for Research, University of Utah 10:00 Q&A, Group Discussion 10:45 Prototype II: Information Technology   Stan Schneider, President, Real-Time Innovations, Inc.   Prototype III: Advanced Manufacturing   Joe Cunning, Executive Director, National Textile Center/University Research Consortium 11:45 Q&A, Group Discussion 12:15 Lunch Buffet (Refectory)
