Your research contracts will be negotiated by the Research Contracts Unit at Queen’s. But what can you do beforehand to ensure a smooth path to signing?

Participants at this session will: 

  • Gain knowledge on how to let potential funders know up front what is needed for a successful research project.
  • Discuss smoothing out publication concerns; dealing with new and existing intellectual property; and getting everything you need from your budget.
  • Use interactive scenarios to work on expressing their requirements and discovering innovative solutions in a friendly and fast-paced session. 
  • Leave with a pre-contract checklist of key issues to aid them in their discussions with potential funders and to help shorten the time the university and funding partners spend negotiating a formal contract. 

For questions, please contact Karen Samis. Please RSVP.
