The University of California Industry-University Cooperative Research Program (IUCR) is a research funding program that partners UC scientists and California businesses in research projects through matching grants. The Industry-University Cooperative Research Program includes Biotechnology STAR (BioSTAR), Digital Media Innovation (DiMI), Communications Research Program (CoRe), Life Sciences Informatics (LSI), and UC Semiconductor Manufacturing Alliance for Research and Training (UC-SMART).

Disclosure Requirements for Proposals

Principal Investigators are required to disclose their financial interests in the corporate partner on the state form, and to disclose their significant interests in related entities on the federal form.

  • Statement of Economic Interests for Principal Investigators (Form 700U)
    • Note: Must be original signed form (no copies)
    • If positive state disclosure, must complete Addendum
  • Annual Disclosure and if necessary, NSF Disclosure (KC COI)
    • If positive NSF disclosure, must complete Addendum for each related entity
  • Addendum for All Positive Disclosures (Form COI-1)

All other personnel involved in the design, conduct, and reporting are required to disclose their financial and other interests consistent with federal regulations on the federal form.

  • Annual Disclosure and if necessary, NSF Disclosure (KC COI)
    • If positive NSF disclosure, must complete Addendum for each related entity

Time Frame

This program requires review of positive financial disclosures by the Conflict of Interest Oversight Committee within 100 days of submission of the proposal. Even when IUCR has decided to fund a project, failure to provide evidence of approval or management of positive disclosures can result in an award being denied. Therefore, it is recommended that researchers provide full disclosure at the time of proposal submission.
