Below are descriptions and links to the three contract templates. To determine which agreement is right for you, see the flowchart. Students are encouraged to discuss with their faculty officials the appropriate agreement for their research activities. Nothing in this agreement prevents your right to have your final thesis reviewed (provided that appropriate arrangements are made when using confidential information). Whether a written agreement is concluded, you may nevertheless be bound by confidentiality obligations if you receive information that you know is confidential and should not be disclosed.

Examples of initiatives funded by contract research are the Atlantic Innovation Fund, the Innovation PEI Prosperity Fund, industrial or research awards, sponsored by federal/provincial associations or agencies. Our Innovation Partnership Services (IPS) department has developed a project management tool that allows you to manage your projects.
