Researcher’s Certificate regarding the EU-financed research project Acronym (EU’s
seventh framework programme for research and development) Grant Agreement n°
This Certificate shall be signed by all researchers participating in the above mentioned project. The
signing of this Certificate shall take place when the Consortium Agreement is final, but before it is
signed by the authorized representative of the University. Researchers which join this project at a later
stage shall sign this Certificate before participating in the project.
Since it is the University of Gothenburg that is party to the EU-project, and not the researcher, the
University has a duty to reach appropriate agreements with its employees to ensure that the
University can fulfil its obligations under the regulations of the EU Framework Programme. Hence,
there must be a deviation from the so-called Professor’s privilege.
This is to certify that I have read the terms and conditions in the Grant Agreement with the
European Commission as well as the Consortium Agreement that has been established
within the scope of this project. I hereby certify that I approve of the rights and obligations
that affect me in the mentioned agreements during the time period that the agreements
concern – even if I would choose to terminate my employment at the University of
Gothenburg. I am aware of the conditions concerning intellectual property rights and the
conditions for publication and what effect this can have, partly on other undertakings that I
am legally bound by, and partly for future undertakings that I might want to accept.
I hereby grant access rights to background knowledge (so called Background) and/or
possible project results (so called Foreground) to the extent necessary for University of
Gothenburg to fulfil its obligations in accordance with the regulations of the EU Framework
