Memorandum of Understanding (MoU)

This is to be put in place where research developed either in part or in whole by NUH employees is at a stage where it requires third party collaboration to drive forward further development for either commercialisation or proof-of-concept/validation studies.

A MoU is not a legally binding contract but provides the foundations to how two or more parties will operate and outlines how the parties envision future results and collaborative working will continue. An MoU must be tailored specifically to any given scenario. Any researchers believing that they require or need such a framework in place should contact the R&D Contracts Manager to discuss further in the first instance.
