You and a civ you have declared friendship with sign a Research Agreement. It costs you both a fixed value of gold (eg. 250). This value goes up over time.

You are watching: Civ 5 research agreement

When the agreement concludes (30 turns), both parties gain the last 8 turns of their own science output in one go. Let's say your empire is producing 250 Science per turn. After 30 turns, you immediately gain 2000 Science.

Research Agreements are very worth it. They are all but required for fast science victories and for science victories full stop at higher difficulties.

One good tip is to sign multiple agreements simultaneously; time them so that they finish 8 turns after you complete building that eras science buildings. For example, 8-10 turns after you finish building Public Schools in all your cities and BOOM LOADSA SCIENCE.

Sorry, but I'm gonna steal the top comment to ask a question of my own :x

Why is it that sometimes the AI insists that the research agreement should consist of me giving up a bunch of extra gold and open borders? Is it because I'm ahead of them in science, or do they just not like me (although the diplo screen would say otherwise).

You still produce the science within that time don't you? As in it would be 30(250)+2000=, right?

Would you like to make a trade agreement with my *fist*??
So it's like you're getting a free bulbing Great Scientist with the GPP increase. That's a sweet deal for 250+ gold.
