Legal issues, Compliance & Ethics
Funders and collaborators usually require a contract for a research project, which defines respective rights, obligations, timelines and budget. Furthermore, an ethical application must be submitted and approved before you conduct studies with research subjects, human tissue or laboratory animals. You must also protect information that is linked directly or indirectly to living persons.
Research Contracts & Agreements
