There is no escape from legal aspects when working in the field of research. Agreements are concluded with subsidy grantors, research partners, publishers, commissioning parties and sub-contractors, among others. As a researcher or as research support staff, you are faced with legal matters such as scientific integrity, intellectual property, publication and liability.
The legal counsels at Erasmus University Rotterdam that provide legal research support are working to protect your and the university’s interests regarding these legal matters. They can simplify complex legal issues, identify legal risks and help navigate them. They can help you out by providing contract templates and reviewing and drafting agreements if needed.
We understand that for someone that is not a lawyer, legal aspects of research can be tedious. However, you don’t have to do it all yourself. Don’t hesitate to contact your legal counsel in case you need legal support.
