A Research Agreement is an agreement between a company and a research organization whereby the company engages the organization to conduct research on healthcare matters. This agreement contains the same provisions of a contract such as payments, reimbursements, scope of work, and milestones. It is typical that the resulting intellectual property will be owned by the company. However, researchers must always retain the right to publish their findings within a reasonable time frame. This sample agreement contains both standard clauses as well as opportunities for customization to ensure that the understandings of the parties are properly set forth.
