McGill`s sample research agreements are available on the Forms and Resources page. Copies of initial agreements and all changes negotiated and executed by PRPP and distributed to campus via PRPP memos. Universities and businesses have a strong incentive to cooperate in the development of intellectual property (IP). Companies recognize universities for their rich talent pool and enthusiastic PhD students, while universities recognize companies as a source of real problems, technical know-how and funding. Examples of successful research cooperation are available in the fields of computer science, informatics and electrical engineering. Given the fact that some IPs, such as genetic splei├čes and human growth hormone, have produced “IP gold mines,” many university administrators (as well as some students and faculty) are striving to take strong security measures to protect their intellectual property rights. one. The size of the work. This is usually described in detail in an exposure to the agreement. provision should be made for the promoter to modify the scope of the work within reasonable limits and, in any event, to authorise any modification; the university4 should be limited or even not have the right to unilaterally change the scope of work. In long-term cooperation, there may be a joint scientific body composed of representatives of the sponsor and the university. The JSC monitors the progress of research and proposes, on the basis of this progress, changes in the workload.

Responsibility, risk and best efforts Since research is inherently unpredictable and with no guarantee of success, academic research is conducted on a “Best Efforts” basis. However, research projects are organized in such a way as to respond to the different time constraints of the promoters. The university does not receive any fees or benefits from its research. For this reason, and also because it is incompatible with the principle of best efforts, the university will not accept contractual provisions guaranteeing results, sanctioning the failure of progress within fixed deadlines or providing for the retention of payments if the sponsor is not satisfied with the results. However, the university will agree to release the research sponsor for the behavior of university officials, agents, employees, students, guests and guests under contracts. In the case of certain medical research projects, the sponsor may be asked to share the cost of compensation paid in the event of a violation of a human subject used in the conduct of the research. This agreement entrusts a research partner with a specific set of work as part of a research project (or a number of research projects) owned by the university and normally involves payments to the partner. The agreement is often concluded as a result of a main grant or other research funding agreement and includes discrete and specific work carried out by a partner organisation. The university remains responsible for the main award, but it often ends up in the conditions relevant to the research partner and, as such, these are reflected in the sub-agreement. The Federal Demonstration Partnership (FDP) is a cooperative initiative of the federal authorities and participating research universities, the aim of which is to reduce the administrative burden related to research missions and grants and to promote productive research environments by: [Author`s note: These agreements govern the conduct of clinical (human) studies, prerequisite for the administrative authorization of a new pharmaceutical product or mediz in the products. The terms of these agreements are often determined by where the clinical trial is conducted, especially when it comes to a leading teaching hospital. .
