Subject:  U.S. Civilian Research and Development Foundation Project Agreements

 

In August, 2003, the U. S. Civilian Research and Development Foundation for the Independent States

of theFormer Soviet Union (CRDF) issued a new Project Agreement for funding for scientific and

technological cooperations between higher educational institutions in the United States and countries

of the former Soviet Union.  This new Project Agreement revised the General Terms and Conditions

which CRDF had in its previous agreements with the University of California.  University campuses

were unable to accept the new terms and conditions due to language in several areas, including

copyrights, liability, governing law, and insurance.

 

CRDF agreed to revise its terms and conditions for the University of California.  The approved

revisions are provided as an Addendum to the Project Agreement.  Both the 8/13/2003 version

of the CRDF Project Agreement and the Addendum of negotiated changes with the University

of California are enclosed with this memo.
