International Collaboration Agreement

Section 2

An International Collaboration Agreement is a formal agreement between UCI and an international university or other institution, which specifies joint academic activities and commits resources. (Resources include funds; facilities and office space; research materials, tools, databases, and equipment; the time or effort of UCI personnel; UCI's name, seals, and wordmarks; intellectual property; etc.)

Some examples of joint activities include:

  • Exchanges of faculty, postdoctoral researchers, student researchers, or staff (visiting scientist agreement may also be required)
  • UCI students taking classes at an international university
  • Research collaborations not covered by a sponsored award, subaward or off-site research agreement
  • Exchanges of academic materials, research materials or technical information (material transfer agreement, license/option agreement, data use agreement and/or non-disclosure agreement may also be required)
  • Collaborative scholarship programs
  • Hosting of joint conferences or workshops
  • Special short-term projects not covered by a sponsored award or subaward

Please review Steps to an Agreement, which explains the agreement process, and contact the International Agreements Officer if you have questions.
