In this course we will cover and discuss the – often very complex – legal rules and principles for contracts in clinical trials as well as the requirements as a result of these contracts. We will focus on substantial sections in contracts, including responsibility, ownership of inventions and data, rights of publication and insurance.

We will discuss how you as an investigator, project manager/nurse, clinical coordinator, monitor, clinical trial manager or similar, prepare, negotiate and indemnify a contract in the best way possible, as well as how you make sure the consequent requirements are met.
