Research funded by the Research Council of Norway
Contract service and legal counselling for research projects funded by the Research Council of Norway.
When a project is granted funding, the Research Council of Norway (NFR) will issue a contract proposal based on the project application. Legal staff at the Division of Research Management will be notified and review the contract on behalf of UiB. Finally it is the Deputy Director General of the department who is authorized to sign agreements.
In projects with multiple participants, each party must have agreed to a cooperation agreement before the NFR will issue a contract and disburse funds. For research projects funded by the Research Council of Norway, the contract format is based on one of the following:
- UiB's own contract template (word document)
- The NFR collaboration agreement templates (NFR homepage, see righthand column)
Do you have questions concerning this contract type or are in need of assistance for drafting or negotiating the agreement, please contact us.
All contracts and agreements needs to be reviewed and signed by the Division of Research Management
