Date & Time 24 February 2022 at 15:00 CET
Location Virtual

In this 7th session of the ENRIITC your Knowledge online training and organisational webinars will explore the issues which can arise in setting up industrial-RI collaborations and draw lessons from the experience of the speakers and participants as to how these can be addressed and resolved. Various types of collaborations in the domains of industry as a user of RIs and co-creator will be dealt with, ranging from pre-competitive to licensing and spin-off companies. Approaches to intellectual property, publication and use rights/licences will be described against the background of the objectives and requirements of the parties. Speakers will give examples from their experience of what can aid and what can hinder successful collaboration and tips on how to achieve balance and harmony.

The webinar will also give suggestions on the best sequence in which to deal with issues whether they are scientific/technical, commercial or legal/contractual. Approaches to secrecy, material transfer and collaboration legal frameworks will be outlined.
