Guiding Principles of Partnership

Generally, the terms of partnership contracts are negotiable and can be adjusted to suit the particular circumstances of the research and the needs of all partners, but there are several guiding principles that are fundamental to all partnerships with the University of Regina:

  1. Our aim is to advance knowledge, which includes publishing results of research.  
  2. The University must be able to disclose, publicly, the sources and amounts of research funding.
  3. Wherever appropriate and not otherwise prohibited, the University must be able to recover indirect costs of research as governed by the University's Research Cost Recovery Policy.
  4. The University is the signing authority for all research grants, awards, and contracts. Researchers, on their own, are not authorized to negotiate the terms of contracts, sign research contracts, or accept funding without the authorization of the University, which is obtained through the Office of Research Services.
