This workshop is aimed at familiarising researchers (and personnel involved in the financial- and project related matters of a research project) with the contractual aspects of research contracts. It covers the process, contractual risks, intellectual property rights, full cost and financial planning, as well as legislation applicable to research projects.

The workshop will thus give researchers more insight into the SU’s Research Contract Management policy as well as Financial- and Intellectual Property- policies and procedures. Information pertaining to the Conflict of Interest Policy, as well as the Ethics Policy relating to research contracts, will be shared with researchers.
