DATA MANAGEMENT PLAN
WEDNESDAY, October 3rd 10:00-11:00 am
Presenter: Margaret Henderson (Health Sciences Librarian)
Federal agencies are now requiring supplementary information to describe how proposers plan to disseminate and share their research results. This workshop, presented by the SDSU Library, will provide the tools needed to write a successful data management plan. This workshop will outline the major sections of a data management plan, identify best practices to keep in mind for managing your data and provide a demonstration of the DMPTool.
TECHNOLOGY TRANSFER AND INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY FOR FACULTY AND RESEARCH PERSONNEL
WEDNESDAY, October 16th 2:00-3:00 pm
Presenter: Tommy Martindale (Director of the TTO)
This session will cover important intellectual property (IP) management considerations for researchers and commercialization programs available to faculty and staff. Technology Transfer Office (TTO) director Tommy Martindale will provide a description of the various forms of IP (patents, copyrights, trademarks and trade secrets) and how each one impacts faculty and research. Tommy will provide information about the TTO’s role in supporting commercialization of faculty IP and research products. Additionally, this session will cover the do’s and don’ts of communicating ideas with potential industry partners. Tommy will also outline invention reporting obligations required under federal awards, an important compliance matter even for researchers who do not wish to pursue commercialization. If you are developing intellectual property or products, or if you are unfamiliar with invention disclosure requirements of federal grants, this workshop will be of interest to you!
EXPORT CONTROLS: INTERNATIONAL TRAVEL AND COLLABORATION
WEDNESDAY, November 6th 10:00-11:30 am
Presenter: Zena Hovda (Export Control Officer)
If you hand carry equipment or your laptop abroad, participate in international collaborations or collaborate with foreign nationals in the U.S. or overseas, you are potentially an exporter and should be aware of how export control may impact your research. This workshop will explain the basics of export control regulations, what types of research are exempt and those requiring export licenses, and how to avoid delays and penalties. If you are conducting research that involves working in, traveling to, or collaborating with colleagues from another country, this important information may apply to you.
