Research contracts, conventions, and agreements
When a research project is carried out jointly by several different institutions, it is strongly recommended that a contract is drawn up to govern the terms of the collaboration. The form the contract will depend on the type of collaboration and research. Particular attention should be paid to intellectual property rights (rights of publication, ownership of data, etc.) The UNIL legal office and more particularly the UNIL-CHUV joint technology transfer office (PACTT) are available to support UNIL researchers who require more information on these issues.
According to UNIL Directive 4.1, all research contracts and agreements, even those no provision for financial compensation, must be declared to the Office of the Dean of the Faculty. Except for confidentiality agreements, all research contracts and agreements must be signed by the Dean of the Faculty.
To declare a research contract and have it signed, or draw up a collaboration agreement or for any questions related to a research contract, please contact:
