All industry-sponsored research projects, and research contracts with government and non-profit agencies are handled by the University-Industry Liaison Office (UILO).
The UILO Sponsored Research Group negotiates, drafts and administers these agreements for researchers at UBC, and undertakes many of these tasks for UBC's Affiliated Hospitals.
The contractual services include:
- assisting in establishing the appropriate agreement
- assisting/advising with budget preparation
- negotiating/reviewing agreement with sponsor
- signing on behalf of UBC
- setting up PG and research project budget
The UILO is also the first port of call to handle non-disclosure and material transfer agreements.
