Step 4. Signature

Before the research project starts, the agreement must be signed by all parties.

The agreement must be signed by all parties. 

Most agreements also require the signatures of the Head of the department and the PI, because the agreements can not be signed by the academics themselves. 

Signature process at KI:

  • All contracts must be signed by the authorised signatories (by the Head of Department and in some cases the Head of Administration) according to the Delegation rules for KI
  • All researchers involved must sign a researcher consent
  • Register (Dnr) and archive both the signed agreement and the researcher consents
