After a moment he spread his hands and said, “As I stated earlier with respect to the sharing of scientific information, these are things that can be negotiated at our leisure on a case-by-case basis. Much of the items you delineated are accessible via our extranets.”
He glanced around the room and took in their expressions. Obviously, this was a moment of impasse, but hopefully they were satisfied that it wasn’t closed permanently. With that settled, he asked, “Are there any other matters you wish to raise or shall perform the signing of contract ceremony?”
