Projects requiring collaboration agreements

For all projects involving partners, the Project Owner is required to sign collaboration agreements with the relevant partners by at the latest three months after receiving the contract documents from the Research Council.

Roles defined in the contract

There are various formal roles to be filled in an R&D project funded by the Research Council. Below you will find the terms we use in our contracts and the responsibilities assigned to each role.

Use of R&D suppliers and sub-contractors

Both the Project Owner and the partners are permitted to engage R&D suppliers and sub-contractors to perform specific tasks in a project.

Is VAT required under collaboration agreements?

We are often asked whether Value Added Tax (VAT) is to be added for deliverables between partners in a project. The answer to this depends on the situation and the type of collaboration.
