Another point to consider is the quantification of the work to be done. It may not be necessary to use precise numbers (for example.B. the types and replications of an experiment or the number of specimens you will use), but to add general instructions on the size and scope of collaborative research. For example, if you are doing a power study and you are using 30 mice per replication, indicate this in the agreement. In this way, both parties will be aware of the magnitude of the types of data to be generated and the level of resources needed for their share of work. Researchers often think they understand what the other has in mind, but without a written description, such assumptions often give rise to misunderstandings. For example, if a researcher at the institute says he or she will „test a new variety in the fields,“ he or she may have in mind an area of half a hectare needed to produce enough plants for publication, while the company scientist has 100 hectares in mind. . . .
