Event description

Description

This event is one of two good-practice sharing workshops run in the context of our 2018 Research Contracts Benchmarking exercise. The event is open to project participants and other institutions alike and the primary audience will be Heads of Service and Senior Contracts Managers.

Event programme

We will be firming up the agenda in conjunction with all project participants over the next two months, but emerging issues which are likely to figure include:

  • Developing and restructuring the contracts function

  • Approaches to due diligence and risk assessment, particularly for international partners

  • Improving contracts review and signoff processes (including schedules of delegation)

  • Policies on arbitration vs litigation, and approaches to dispute resolution

  • Dealing with overseas jurisdictions

  • Comparison of templates and approaches for consultancy, studentship, equipment and data transfer agreements

  • Using data and KPIs

We will also share some of the high-level results from the benchmarking exercise, but the main emphasis will on networking and sharing of good practice between the participants.

We will meet at 10.00 for coffee and networking and aim to start the event at 10.30.

Pricing

The event is free for those involved in the benchmarking exercise, while for others the cost will be £350+VAT per delegate, or £600+VAT for two delegates from the same institution. Please sign up via this website and we will send an invoice before the event.
