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 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 (3.0) was launched in November 2021.
