OTTN/uOttawa at CAURA

OTTN participated as speakers/panellists at three sessions at the 40th Annual CAURA meeting held in Ottawa May 15-18. Sean Flanigan and Joe Irvine participated in the Research Contracts II workshop on Sunday (along with Morag Cowell, NRC and Session Chair Neil Campbell, U Calgary) and spoke about the lessons we can learn from the Lambert UK agreements. Sean outlined the use of one of the Lambert template agreements in the SME4SME program and participated in the mock negotiation session.
Sean Flanigan also participated in the Engaging Industry panel session on Monday, outlining how the SME4SME program helped to engage new companies to work with uOttawa/OTTN. Joe Irvine was a panellist in a Tuesday session entitled Where Do Your Adjuncts Come From?” with Elizabeth White, NRC and Dr. Subash Sad, NRC and a uOttawa adjunct professor.
This program included many panelists and more registrants from uOttawa and was for CAURA a record setting attendance with over 500 registrants. Our cool and rainy weather meant most registrants stayed in the sessions rather than enjoying the tulips or other tourist attractions.
