An agreement between two or more institutions (universities) to accomplish a particular task that is generally related to research and/or technology transfer. This type of agreement describes the terms under which two or more institutions will collaborate to assess, protect, market, license and share in the revenues received from licensing jointly owned Intellectual Property. Most such agreements take the form of a Collaborative Research Agreement (where the goal of the agreement is to jointly conduct a research project) or the form of an Intellectual Property Management Agreement (where the goal is to protect and commercialize jointly developed Intellectual Property).
