Collaboration Agreement Brunswick

To help you choose which of the 7 model research cooperation agreements best fits the circumstances of your project, a decision guide guides you through some of the principles and criteria you want to take into account when deciding on ownership and rights of use of intellectual property. It may be useful to read this guide before using any of the Model Research Cooperation Agreements. The aim of the model agreements is to maximise innovation and promote cooperation with industry and knowledge sharing. The keystone of the 7 model research cooperation agreements is that at least one commercial “partner” (called a collaborator) has the right to use the results of the project on a non-exclusive basis to promote the exploitation of the results and, therefore, innovation.
