These core principles will provide direction for the growing number of faculty and administrators involved in new forms of research relationships with industry and other extramural parties, and will allow the University to maintain consistency across the campuses and Laboratories. In addition, the principles should provide University negotiators with a basis to support positions taken during often challenging contract negotiations. Levels of local flexibility within these principles will be based on the individual preferences, capabilities, and resource commitments of each UC site.
The policy was originally developed by a Technology Transfer Advisory Committee (TTAC) working group that included representatives of Business and Finance and Academic Affairs in the Office of the President, and the Academic Senate. In addition to extensive campus, Laboratory and Senate review and input, the policy underwent review by the Council on Research (COR), the Council of Vice Chancellors for Research, and the full TTAC.
