The University of Oxford’s Research Services can provide template agreements for data sharing.
A range of template data sharing and data access agreements (suitable for research from all four academic divisions) are available. While these agreements are designed to address key issues, they will need to be tailored to the specific needs of a particular project. Research Services can advise on this, and also offer to check drafts as they are prepared before producing a final signature-ready copy.
For further information, see the information about Data Transfer on the Research Services website (SSO login required), or contact Research Services directly.

Research Services also offer broader advice on Research Contracts, and on Intellectual Property. Researchers producing IP which may have commercial value should also consult Oxford University Innovation, the University of Oxford’s technology transfer company, which was established to help researchers in the University protect and commercialise their inventions.
