Confidential Disclosure Agreements

Revised February, 2015

A CDA is an agreement between the university and an outside entity (company or person) to facilitate discussions of confidential information. It allows companies to, discuss their business needs and development problems without the risk of their confidential information being revealed to their competitors. For universities, maintaining confidentiality can preserve intellectual property rights (domestic and foreign) to inventions.
