This practical and interactive two-day course explains what you need to know and do to get the best commercial results from your R&D and joint venture agreements, whether they are operating in the UK or across borders.
When you are embarking on a project which is in partnership with another organisation, be they academia or industry, both parties need to agree on the thorny topics of IP ownership, other common provisions and the type of collaboration structure that will suit them both. The allocation of risk and ancillary aspects such as confidentiality, material transfer agreements and heads of terms also have to be wrestled with.
The expert trainer covers the following topics from a UK and international perspective:
IP ownership and rights of use
Sole, joint and segmented ownership and rights of use
EU and UK competition law
Types of party and collaboration structure
The use of interactive case studies and exercises will help embed the learning.
