If you have funding from, or receive supervisory support from an external party such as a research institute, company, public sector establishment etc., the external party should also be involved when you enter into the PhD contract. Should it be necessary to regulate other legal issues than those mentioned in the PhD contract, this can be enclosed with the PhD contract (in appendix). If you have any questions, please contact Legal Advisor email@example.com.
If you are going to complete your PhD programme in collaboration with another graduate institution such as a university, or a college with the right to award doctoral degrees, in Norway or abroad, you need to enter into the Cotutelle agreement (FORM 1.4). Please note that this agreement comes in addition to the regular PhD contract.
