Sponsored Research

A Sponsored Research Agreement is an agreement between a sponsor and a researcher (PI) that clearly outlines a work agreement and a set of deliverables in exchange for which the PI receives support for a specified period of time.

Caltech has many mutually beneficial research relationships with outside companies, ranging from one-time individual projects to larger, multi-PI projects.  Contacts and initial negotiations with industry are managed through OTTCP, and the final sponsored research agreements are processed by the Office of Sponsored Research.
