University-Industry Demonstration Partnership

K-State is a member of the University-Industry Demonstration Partnership, or UIDP, and is committed to implementing best practices and innovative approaches in its industry collaborations — which includes considering the project scope and planned activities when working with industry to develop sponsored project agreements appropriate for each collaboration.

UIDP provides a number of helpful publications and reports. Because K-State is a member institution, our faculty and staff can create a login and password with their K-State email to access members-only information.
