Non-Disclosure Agreements (NDA) 

As a researcher at the University, you need an NDA when you would like to share your intellectual property or you are approached by an outside party to receive or share intellectual property. An NDA will be needed when working with non-WVU collaborators, companies, grants with NDA stipulations and any other party with who intellectual property may be disclosed or received during discussions.
