COHED publishes new guidance document on negotiating fairer research contracts for LMIC

Council on Health Research and Development (COHED) has published a guidance document: Where there is no lawyer - Guidance for fairer contract negotiation in collaborative research partnerships.

Better contract negotiation expertise in low- and middle-income country institutions will help improve the distribution of benefits of collaborative research, such as overhead costs, data ownership, institutional capacity in research management, technology transfer, and intellectual property rights. These are some of the issues addressed in COHRED’s new guidance document on negotiating fairer research contracts, available here
