No. 1 www.businessdictionary.com/definition/research-and-development-R-D.html gifts are a voluntary transfer of valuables from a person or organization for which no material quantity of goods or services is expected. A gift is usually motivated by a charitable intent and is irrevocable. Gifts, sometimes called charitable funds, share many functions with sponsored projects/agreements, including requirements for progress and financial reporting or results, as well as a clear volume of work. The types of gifts are: Visiting Scientist Agreement: An agreement between the university and another university institution or another party that describes the conditions and rules to be followed while a faculty member is visiting the other institution. This type of agreement is used to facilitate the commissioning of certain professional services by a third party by the college. Under these agreements, it is not a question of conducting research or innovative work, but only of analyzing, processing, manufacturing or providing specialized knowledge. All results will be at the university without a right of use being granted to the counsellor. These agreements are not likely to conclude an agreement or cooperation in research.
A team agreement (TA) is a binding agreement between one or more organizations that partner to propose to a main sponsor – often a federal government agency – a new collaborative research project in response to a tender request (RFP). The lead organization of the proposal generally designs the TA. Intellectual property agreements: as the name of the agreement indicates, IP agreements are narrowly defined. As a general rule, intellectual property agreements are written to cover inventions or other discoveries that may result from cooperation. Although they can cover copyright (including some form of intellectual property), they often do not. Nevertheless, the coverage of intellectual property agreements for inventions would be much the same as for copyright. The fundamental issue that is addressed is intellectual property (i.e. who owns what and under what conditions). Other issues raised would be licensing fees between the parties and, possibly, the cost-sharing and revenue-sharing provisions related to the protection and licensing of intellectual property. Co-operative contract: a cooperative agreement is akin to a subsidy, since the main objective of the operation is to fulfill a public purpose.
A cooperation agreement involves substantial participation and cooperation between the promoter and the university in the implementation of the activities under the agreement. Examples: a hardware transfer contract is a contract that governs the transfer of research materials between two organizations. They define the rights, obligations and restrictions of the supplying party and the party receiving it on matters such as ownership, publication, intellectual property and authorized use and liability. Three types of MTAs are most common in academic institutions: transfer between academic or research institutions, transfer of science to industry, and transfer from industry to science. Everyone demands different conditions.
