    I'm interest in finding out how your university handles consortiums with industry.

    • Who signs the membership agreements for your university?
    • Are the funds handled through your Office of Philanthropy, Sponsored Projects or Other?
    • If the membership agreement provides access for the industry sponsor to have a research project conducted by students or faculty, do you consider that to be a sponsored project?
    • Are indirect costs charged against the membership fees? If so, what rate is used –your full rate or a reduced one?
