General agreements

DCSD’s Guidelines for Good Scientific Practice with special focus on health science, natural science and technical science (2009) include ”Guidelines for agreements at the initiation of research projects”. These guidelines comprise a list of potential terms of agreement and may serve as a checklist when entering into research collaborations.

Commissioned research and industrial PhD projects

The Danish Council for Research and Innovation Policy has developed five model agreements and associated guidelines which cover different types of collaboration between public research institutions and private enterprises:

Industrial PhD candidates are enrolled at the university and are employed by a private company at the same time. See the article on Industrial PhD candidates.

Research-based consultancy

Please see this article on public sector consultancy.

Model agreement for data sharing

Aarhus University and the Royal Library in Aarhus have developed a model agreement for research collaboration and associated guidelines.
