This course is for employees at UiT who work with research projects involving several parties, internally at the institution or externally. The aim of the course is to provide researchers and research administration with an overview of the regulations and types of agreements that we must relate to in research collaboration, with a particular focus on research data. The course gives an overview of how different agreements can be used such that all relevant parties ensure ownership and use of data, as well as safeguard other rights and fulfil their duties. This applies to both large externally and internally funded projects, and smaller projects that are economically part of daily operations.
The course further focuses on agreements for sharing of data that are contracted prior to the start of the project, for example confidentiality and intention agreements. It also emphasises agreements with clauses on IPR and transfer of rights in externally funded projects, and how UiT can facilitate fulfilment of potential commitments to collaborating entities.
The course will be given by Svetlana Petricheva Johansen. There will be plenty of time questions, comments, and discussion.
