Research Passport Agreement

The Health Translation Queensland Research Passport Agreement is a collaborative agreement between all Health Translation Queensland’s partners, which aims to streamline the research approval process across the partnership.

The Agreement consists of a research agreement and an operating schedule. With pre-agreed legal terms and schedule items, the Agreement reduces the number of legal reviews required for health-related collaborative research, and speeds up the approval process.

The Health Translation Queensland Research Passport Agreement was launched in November 2016. It has subsequently been revised with minor amendments. The current version (3.1, March 2022) was fully executed in June 2022.

A copy of the Research Passport Agreement, Schedule and Third-Party Agreement can be downloaded by clicking on the links below. You will be asked for your name and email before downloading. This information will be kept securely and only used to contact you when the agreement is updated.
