CRADA Fact Sheet


A Cooperative Research and Development Agreement (CRADA) is a written agreement that facilitates research and development (R&D) collaboration between one or more federal laboratories and one or more non-federal entities. Both parties to a CRADA may provide personnel, facilities, equipment, or other resources, but the government may not provide funding to non-federal entities under a CRADA. CRADAs are authorized by 15 U.S. Code § 3710a. The CRADA fact sheet provides information about DHS CRADAs, when to use a CRADA, who may participate in a CRADA, and the benefits of using a CRADA.
