How it works
The company contacts the Research Management Service and indicates what it wants. The service selects a team of researchers specializing in this area.
The Research Management Service sends a draft agreement that stipulates the technical and financial conditions.
When the parties have reached a consensus on the wording of the agreement, they sign it and commence the defined activities.
