6 “The Research Governance Toolkit has been developed to assist Victorian Public entities engaged in the conduct of clinical research with the establishment of research governance. The RGT is intended to provide the appropriate guidance and provision of essential tools in the form of templates, proformas or SOPs that will facilitate good research governance practice. ”

23 Intellectual Property & Publication Effective administration, protection and utilisation of an organisation’s Intellectual Property can provide important financial benefits to that organisation and thus can offset the substantial costs of an organisation’s investment in its research activity and contribute enormously towards its financial viability, reputation and ongoing success.

25 Research Risk Management By definition “risk management’ describes the activities an organisation undertakes to manage the “effect of uncertainty on its objectives’. Equally as important however, it should be about seizing opportunities as well.

28 RGT The challenges –The scope of works for the project were considerable given the allocated timeframe –Not mandating strongly a specific template for submitting work packages –The natural evolution of legislation or standards over the allocated project period –The ever evolving clinical trial landscape –Proof reading & final sign off.

29 The Launch RGT to be made officially available 2 nd of June Each VMIA insured healthcare & medical research entity involved in research will receive: a hardcopy of the RGT a CD with: –a complete PDF and word version Each institute must protect the version control of their own RGT
