Master Research Agreements

Master Research Agreements (MRAs) set forth the terms and conditions for multiple sponsored research projects as part of formalized agreements between the University and companies. The aim of an MRA is to establish a long-term strategic relationship that may include multiple projects involving one or more entities within the University and company. Projects contemplated under an MRA are related in some way(s) that make it reasonable to establish a common set of terms and conditions.

Such agreements can create more opportunities for research and collaboration, as well as increase research dollars and patentable and publishable technologies for the University. MRAs can also result in a strengthening of the strategic relationship between the University and company, leading to benefits beyond the contracted projects. Finally, such relationships, once established, can streamline the contracting process.
