Sponsored Research Agreement (SRA) can take many different forms and are called different names.
There are four basic types of SRAs:
- Grants/co-op agreements
- Subawards and subcontracts
- Industry sponsored clinical trial/basic science agreements.
In terms of grants and co-op agreements, the sponsored research agreements are called the Notice of Award (NOA) or NGA (Notice of Grant Award – NOGA).
In conducting research, there are also other related agreements such as
- Non-Disclosure Agreements, Confidentiality Agreements (NDA)
- Material Transfer Agreement (MTA)
- Data Sharing Agreement
