8 Exploitation of Results and Dissemination of Information
8.2 Collaboration
64 8.2
  • STFC expects collaborative research, either in the form of the joint pursuit of research with industry e.g. through IPS, or between similar organisations to be put on a formal footing, for example, through a collaboration and/or exploitation agreement.

  • STFC will not contribute to negotiating exploitation agreements for collaborative research but will require an assurance that an agreement, acceptable to all parties, exists before the research begins.

  • Arrangements for collaboration and/or exploitation must not prevent the future progression of research and the dissemination of research results in accordance with academic custom and practice and the RCUK policy on Open Access.
