In 2011, COHRED committed to launch its “Fair Research Contracting” initiative to support low and middle income countries (LMICs) where negotiating equitable research partnerships remains a central issue. The Fair Research Contracting initiative aims to identify best practices for the research contracting (negotiation) process that would be useful in the following three scenarios

  1. where there is no lawyer,

  2. where there may be lay personnel who could be trained, and

  3. where there is a lawyer or legal expertise.

COHRED is proud to announce that the Rockefeller Foundation has awarded the Fair Research Contracting initiative with a fully funded “Bellagio Center Conference.” The Rockefeller Foundation Bellagio Center’s mission is to promote innovation and identify impact-oriented solutions to critical global problems. Bellagio conferences are small, focused, interactive gatherings designed to push creative and innovative thinking to address global challenges.
