Cooperation Agreement Universities

Each division within the institutions concerned that wishes to participate in an exchange appoints a coordinator to oversee and facilitate the implementation of the agreement. The mission of coordinators who cooperate with other appropriate administrators at the universities concerned is to provide that international cooperation can, as a rule, involve up to three short agreements before the conclusion of the main cooperation agreement. These agreements are: possible activities under a bilateral agreement: the departments coordinated by our school that participate in the agreement are: architecture (DA), economic engineering (DIN), electrical, electronic and information engineering (DEI), construction, chemistry, environment and materials (DICAM) and computer science and engineering (DISI). In the context of international cooperation between two higher education providers, it is desirable for the parties to negotiate a confidentiality agreement before concluding formal discussions. Again, one wonders what the weight of a confidentiality agreement is, given that it can be difficult to implement, but experience shows that a confidentiality agreement can help to focus the minds of the parties on the implementation of adequate procedures for protecting confidential information that is disclosed to each other during the due diligence process. In addition to preventing the disclosure of confidential information by the other party, the agreement should also aim to establish minimum standards to ensure the security of the information. It may also attempt to prevent one of the two institutions from publicly discussing cooperation or from discussing it without the agreement of the other party. Finally, some confidentiality agreements are used to reduce the possibility for one of the poaching parts of the other`s key personnel. If a lengthy due diligence process is initiated, both institutions could obtain information on key collaborators of the other institution. The confidentiality agreement can be used to ensure that one party does not offer employment to the other person`s key personnel. Such an agreement cannot be used to prevent the relocation of staff themselves (it would be both a trade restriction and a denial of the principles of academic freedom), while the parties can prevent each other from actively addressing those staff.
