ORA maintains and makes available a comprehensive library of standard model agreements for contracting with research collaborators and can create custom agreements as needed. Determining the appropriate type of agreement will depend upon several factors, including the nature of the activity being conducted (i.e. research, services, etc.), project funding, and nature of any proprietary information, data or materials being exchanged. When School of Medicine faculty and staff discuss potential projects with research partners, we strongly recommend engaging ORA as early as possible in that process to determine the appropriate type of agreement.
The status of any agreements pending in ORA are viewable in MyRap. Please contact your ORA Contracts Team member with any questions. ORA contract agreement templates can be found on our Award Management: Forms & Templates page.
JHU investigators interested in collaborating with the Applied Physics Laboratory (APL) can review the APL collaborations page for University guidance.
