SUMS International Contracts and MOUs

 

 

What is a Memorandum of Understanding?

A Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) is a legal document describing a bilateral agreement between two or more parties. It expresses a convergence of will between the parties, indicating an intended common line of action, rather than a legal commitment. MOUs are not legally enforceable in a court of law or by some other legal process.

 

What is a Memorandum of Agreement?

A Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) is a legally binding agreement between two or more parties that creates an obligation to do or not do a particular thing. MOAs are legally enforceable in a court of law or by some other legal process. A pre-requisite to sign a MOA at Shiraz University of Medical Sciences (SUMS), is to have already signed a MOU to make sure that all the parties have a general understanding and a framework for the types of collaboration they are about to initiate.

 

Activities included in MOUs and MOAs:

  • Staff and Student Exchange
  • Joint Degree, Dual Degree and Cotutelle PhD Programs
  • Joint Research Projects
  • International Human Capacity Development
  • Clinical or Practicum Abroad
  • Distance Education
  • Joint workshops, Seminars, Symposiums and Conferences
  • Clinical Trial Agreements
  • Capacity Building Projects

 

What is a Non-disclosure Agreement?

A Non-disclosure Agreement (NDA) is an Agreement where at least two parties agree on a legal contact which contains important confidential information for a certain project or certain purposes where the parties do not intend to disclose it to the third parties. At SUMS, NDAs are usually signed when a joint research leads to any sort of research output (Books, Book Chapters, Article, etc.) or a patent.
