Investigator-led studies are designed by academics and generally sponsored by their employer. These trials are funded by grants from charities, research councils, government authorities, etc. or with the support of pharmaceutical companies. When a pharmaceutical company provides funding (and, in some cases, free drugs), an agreement must be reached between the college and the company to ensure that each party is committed to complying with the laws, regulations and codes of conduct applicable to the completion of the study. The agreement contains provisions relating to the supply of drugs, financing, security reports, insurance/commitments, publications, intellectual property, etc. This type of agreement is used to facilitate the commissioning of certain professional services by a third party by the college. Under these agreements, it is not a question of conducting research or innovative work, but only of analyzing, processing, manufacturing or providing specialized knowledge. All results will be at the university without a right of use being granted to the counsellor. These agreements are not likely to conclude an agreement or cooperation in research. The purpose of a research contract is to define the roles and responsibilities of the parties involved in a research project, i.e. the college, academics, researchers, students and the funding centre.
The treaty is as follows: the given project to strengthen and develop the legal basis for cooperation in the field of scientific work in the Caspian Sea, including monitoring and analysis of natural and anthropogenic factors, plays an important role in the development of scientific cooperation in research between Turkmenistan and the Caspian States. This agreement requires a research partner to have a specific set of work in the context of a research project (or a number of research projects) implemented by the college and usually involves payments to the partner. The agreement is often developed following a major grant or other research funding agreement and includes discreet and specific work to be done by a partner organization.
