Research Passport

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 an umbrella agreement and an operating schedule. With 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. A revision to the agreement was executed on 24 April 2020 and version 2 was launched. 

With the inclusion of CSIRO e-Health as a Health Translation Queensland partner, a subsequent minor revision to include the e-Health Centre to the passport was signed off on 1 December 2020.

Version 2.1 is the current version of the Research Passport Agreement.
