Innovation York’s agreements unit is committed to ensuring that your agreements are drafted, reviewed, negotiated, and executed in a timely manner.
There are many types of research agreements: Funding Agreements – an agreement that allows for the transfer of money from the government, non-profit organizations, other academic institutions, or industry for academic research projects; Subgrant Agreements – an agreement that allows for the transfer of money from the university to other academic institutions or non-profit organizations. This excludes the transfer of tri-council grant funding, which is completed by the Grants & Applications unit ; and Non-Funding Agreements – an agreement that allows for the facilitation of research, but does not involve money.
Please note, all research agreements must be signed by the appropriate signing authority in the Division of the Vice President, Research & Innovation:
- Vice-President, Research & Innovation
- Associate Vice-President, Research (2)
- Executive Director, Research & Innovation Services
For further information, please see the Signing Registry on the Office of the Counsel website.
