Contract research and contract manufacturing

Depending on your specific needs , contract research may be the best way to benefit from academic research. This can for example relate to the execution of specific laboratory experiments; access to advanced equipment, databases or rare collections and archives; developing methodologies; developing and performing polls and surveys among selected populations or the general public; production of (small quantities) of specific compounds or materials (contract manufacturing) – the range is very broad.

In contract research and contract manufacturing, the client defines what is expected in terms of outcomes (data, materials, inventories, reports etc.) and to which standards the outcomes should adhere (quality standards etc.). Together with the client, the researchers discuss what can be expected, what is needed to deliver the required outcomes and what the fee for the overall services should be. 

IXA takes care of the legal arrangement that underlie contract research and contract manufacturing activities. We will draft the required contracts, which will include paragraphs on intellectual property and rights of ownership on application of the outcomes. The terms pertaining to IP and ownership are of course depending on the particular nature of the activities and the needs and interests of the parties involved.
