Research Contracts

​To perform contract research at Stellenbosch University, a researcher needs to comply with the Contract Research Policy and other applicable policies and processes.

In terms of the Contract Research Policy, the Division for Research and Development needs to review and approve all research and research-related contracts, before the authorised representative of Stellenbosch University will sign the contract.  See the Types of Research Contracts section for information on the different contract types and examples of each type.

To commence with the Contract Approval Process the following has to be sent to the Division for Research Development:

  • The draft contract / a request for a contract template
  • The project description / scope of work
  • The budget (if applicable)
