Establishing Cooperative Research Memoranda of Agreement

Cooperative Research Memoranda of Agreement are fairly generic. They are similar to Office of International Education Honorary Memoranda of Agreement with the addition of a section explaining the focused area of research that is intended between the two institutions.

Review and approvals needed at CU-Boulder:

  • Review and approval of the Vice Chancellor for Research.  Please familiarize yourself with Research Integrity and Regulatory Compliance standards, including Export Controls.  You can find information on this subject here.
  • If funded research, approval by the Office of Contracts and Grants is required
  • University counsel approval (if the parties use the template approved by university counsel, the approval process is quick and straight-forward)
  • Review and approval by the Office of the Provost
  • Signature by the Chancellor Designee or Provost


Dependent on time of year; such an agreement can be approved in as little as a month.  Non-standard language requires additional time for review
