Developing a Plan to Involve External Partners in Your Research

About: This session is an introduction to planning for research engagement with external partners (e.g. industry, government and not-for-profit). It covers research impact as a strategy and policy context, identifying benefits of partnering and the need for diversification of funding sources outside traditional grants. The session outlines available learning and development resources and guides researchers towards development of a plan to help pursue their own potential partner links. This information session is best provided on request for academic departments, research centres, or small groups and can be customised to suit your needs.

To request a session, please email research.partnerships@mq.edu.au.

Identifying Potential Partner Organisations (Industry Sector Information and Databases)

About: Identifying potential partner organisations requires an understanding of the potential “market” for your research and the particular dynamics of working with non-academic organisations. Unless you are lucky enough to be approached, making a start can often seem like a daunting challenge. This session outlines a variety of ways to find potential partner organisations and how to approach and engage with the ones most likely to be collaborative and funding prospects for you and your research. This information session is best provided on request for academic departments, research centres, or small groups and can be customised to suit your needs.

To request a session, please email research.partnerships@mq.edu.au.

Discussing Research Ideas with Non-Academic Partners

About: For most non-academic partners, research is a means to an end; a way to improve products or services provided by their organisation or the stimulus to innovate to introduce new ones. This session explores ways to discuss your ideas in way that helps to surface the motivations and drivers of partners. It covers ways to generate partner confidence and interest in your research capabilities and current project interests that will increase the likelihood of progressing to the project scoping stage. This information session is best provided on request for academic departments, research centres, or small groups and can be customised to suit your needs.

To request a session, please email research.partnerships@mq.edu.au.

Developing Pitches and Proposals for Industry, Government and Not-for-Profit Partners

About: Industry, government and not-for-profit partners request or accept proposals for funding in an infinite variety of formats. This session covers the essentials of developing these proposals from brief capability and concept “pitch” stage documents to complex and highly customised full proposals that are developed in close consultation with a member of the funding partner organisation. As needed, the session can also cover some of the essentials of tendering. This information session is best provided on request for academic departments, research centres, or small groups and can be customised to suit your needs.

To request a session, please email research.partnerships@mq.edu.au.

Budget, Intellectual Property and Publication Negotiations

About: This session covers the costing and pricing of research projects in accordance with University policy and with an eye to securing partner funding. It also outlines ways to ensure there is appropriate scope for the publication of findings and results.

This information session is best provided on request for academic departments, research centres, or small groups and can be customised to suit your needs.

To request a session, please email research.partnerships@mq.edu.au.

Research Agreement and Contract Essentials

About: Agreements and contracts formalise the rights and obligations between parties to enable them to maximise benefits and mitigate risk. This session provides an overview of the main types of research agreements and contracts used for partner-funded projects. It then highlights the important terms and conditions that researchers need to be aware of. Lastly, it explains the central roles of Research Office, Office of Commercialisation and Legal Office staff in the contract negotiation, drafting, review and sign-off process.
