Research Passport Agreement and resources

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 (3.2 December 2022) was fully executed in January 2023 to include our new partners Griffith University and the Gold Coast Hospital and Health Service.

A copy of the Research Passport Agreement and Schedule 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.

The third-party agreement as of December 2022 has been retired, due to the new National Multi-Jurisdictional Multi-Party non Clinical Trial Collaborative Research Agreement.
