Research Contracts & Innovation (RC&I) - 25 Years Strong

RC&I has two important functions: 

  • supporting UCT’s research activities by centrally managing, authorising, and negotiating research contracts entered into with our wide variety of funders; and
  • fulfilling the role of a technology transfer office and commercialising the university’s research outputs to stimulate the growth of the South African economy, foster small business development, and transform society for social, commercial, and environmental benefit.

RESEARCH CONTRACTS

The Legal Advisors at RC&I work closely with the Faculty Finance Offices, researchers, and their faculties and departments when negotiating a research contract.
