Policy on Classified and Proprietary Work

Policy on Classified and Proprietary Work
UMD policy on sponsored research agreements supports the dissemination of research results. The University System of Maryland does not enter into agreements to carry out research if the grant, contract, or other award instrument restrains the freedom of the University and its faculty to disclose the existence of the grant or contract, the general nature of the inquiry to be conducted, or the identity of the sponsor. The University reserves, for its faculty, the right to publish the results of the research without the prior approval of the sponsor.
