Corporate travel insurance

UWA has a new corporate travel insurance policy in place with the insurer, Accident & Health International Underwriting Pty Ltd (AHI). The policy provides cover for all UWA travellers on approved university business or study related travel.

All travel must be approved in accordance with the appropriate university delegated authority via the University’s travel management system Concur in line with the University’s Travel Policy.

If you have any queries about the University’s corporate travel insurance please contact UWA’s insurance partner, Arthur J. Gallagher (AJG) via email or call    (+61 8) 9424 4444 during business hours.

Research Week

During Research Week, Risk and Legal ran an innovative pop-up walk through office, providing the UWA Community with an opportunity to discuss topical research-related legal themes with UWA’s legal counsel.

The event was focused on three posters visually summarising data ownership, clinical trials and complex collaborations. These posters and presentations are available to the UWA Community and will be of value to research staff in particular, to include in the planning stages of their projects documentation mapping.

Email Risk and Legal to find out more about the services we provide or if you would like information on certain topics that may be particularly relevant to your area.

Risk and Legal resources

Risk and Legal would be pleased to discuss the development of self-help tools and resources or the provision of training and support in other areas of interest, to assist the University to achieve its research aims and strategic priorities.

UWA staff members can log in with Pheme credentials to access these posters and presentations.
