Two intellectual property documents were developed between Sparrow and MSU: the Interinstitutional Agreement and the Shared Principles Agreement. A set of principles to guide future collaborative research projects and other forms of collaboration undertaken by the parties, and a contractual framework to serve as a guide for terms governing intellectual property, publication, and confidentiality in future collaborative research projects were developed.
An agreement has been established between Michigan State University and Sparrow Hospital System, and possible third parties, regarding collaborative projects.
Sparrow and MSU share the principles and goals with respect to research, innovation, and inter-institutional collaboration.
