Collaborations, project partnerships and research subcontracts

These agreements cover the University working with other partners on a research project either as equal partners (collaborations or project partnerships) or where one party is delivering a specific element of a project on behalf of the University (research subcontract).

In many instances, these agreements will be initiated automatically when the funding is accepted.  However, if you feel there is an agreement yet to be finalised (or where the agreement was not required at the start of the project) please email, providing relevant background information including any project number, details of who the partners/subcontractors will be, the type of contract required.

If you have already received a draft agreement from another party please forward this to with related background information, including any project numbers, the name of the project, Reading’s principle investigator and any other relevant information.
