The programme will cover the following areas:

  • what research contracts are and when and how we use them
  • an introduction to contract law
  • the key elements of a research contract
  • when and how standard agreements can help us
  • issues that arise in the course of contract negotiations

The event will examine specific case studies and use information gained throughout the workshop to highlight key issues, understand the implications of certain contracts or individual terms, make informed decisions and help develop contracts which are fit for purpose.

Target Audience

This course is targeted at staff in research support roles (whether in departments, faculties or central research offices) who come across research contracts in their day-to-day work and support the contract process, including those who are not necessarily contracts specialists.

Contract specialists who are new in post will also find this a useful pre-cursor to the more detailed 3-day workshop offered by PraxisUnico, as part of their national training programme aimed at technology transfer professionals working in universities, research institutions and industry.
