Research Contracts

Contractual terms and conditions for research grants can range from standard, pre-agreed terms and conditions (e.g. those of a Research Council or a major UK charity) to non-standard terms and conditions (e.g. those of a private sponsor such as a privately owned company).

It is the responsibility of the Research Support Office to ensure that each contractual agreement entered into by the University to undertake research for an external body incorporates the appropriate terms and conditions which are most beneficial to the University. External advice will be obtained if deemed necessary. All contractual agreements must be reviewed by the Research Support Office who will also organise for the signature of such documents by the legally authorised signatories of the University.
