Any experience doing data research projects with universities?

Hi, my early stage company is interested in doing a research project (in the film industry/analytics field). Does anyone here have experience securing a project with Universities? I'm looking to do a joint project in the Los Angeles or San Francisco areas (LA preferred).

How do you approach? What are they looking for? Any contacts?

Years ago I had formed a company around a system I was trying to developed. I started to pitch the idea to various educational institutions. One of my contacts put me in touch with a key principal at a university. I pitched the idea and within a week I was sent a teaming agreement for my company to work as the Developer with the university on a 3yr/$300K "Stepping Stones of Technology" grant application. Unfortunately, I was not happy with the terms of the agreement and was left with hardly any time to negotiate a new contract so I pulled out.

However, if I was to follow that process again I would first research the institutions, departments and professors that you would want to work with. Find out if they are active in applying for project grants in your field. Check the schedules and deadlines of relevant SBIR grants at http://www.sbir.gov/# and then approach the Director, Deptment head or professor directly. Even if you get interest be sure to understand the time tables involved, your responsibly and any restrictions that could come from such a project.

Ginger,

I'm sorry, the site I was actually thinking about was grants.gov. It is a site that lists all federally funded grants that are available. SBIR might offer some help as well, but grants.gov will give you a better picture of the grants available.

Good luck!
Noah
