Georgia Tech and Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta have a common interest in collaborative research that brings clinicians and academic scientists and engineers together to solve important problems in pediatrics and in the development of technological solutions for improving children’s health. Potential collaborative research efforts can occur in many disciplines—from development of new devices and technologies to medical records informatics to healthcare systems, to name just a few. 

To facilitate these types of collaborations, the Georgia Tech Research Corporation (GTRC) and Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta have entered into a reciprocal intellectual property (IP) agreement to address ownership and management of intellectual property. This agreement is a companion to the Master Research Agreement and establishes a framework for efficient dissemination of new intellectual property that arises from research involving employees of both Georgia Tech and Children’s or that uses significant resources of both entities.
