For most Urban Alliance collaborative projects, the University lead researcher should complete a Project Charter form, in consultation with the City partner(s) and any co-researchers. The Charter provides key details about the collaboration and ensures a clear understanding of the responsibilities and expectations of all the partners in the project. Please submit the signed form as directed.
Project Contract Agreement
An Urban Alliance Project Contract Agreement is required when the City provides financial or significant in-kind support for a research project. The Urban Alliance Master Terms and Conditions apply to this Agreement. When you submit the Project Charter, University of Calgary Research Services will use it to complete the Agreement and will obtain institutional signatures.
In some situations, the City may agree to provide data to support University research without entering into a deeper collaborative arrangement. In most cases the data can be made available through a non-disclosure / confidentiality agreement, either directly or via the University of Calgary Library City data depository (SANDS).
Please contact us so we can help you find the best arrangement for your situation.
