Model agreements are starting points and their use is not mandatory. You should decide which of the 7 approaches is more appropriate and negotiate with the other party before you start working on the project. None of the 7 research cooperation agreements deal with common ownership of intellectual property. You will find examples of co-ownership clauses under consortium contract type A. Model agreements are starting points and their use is not mandatory. Each type of agreement provides for different circumstances and is not sectoral, allowing for flexible use. However, the model conventions can be adapted to the specificities of your project. There are two modelling agreements, one for bipartite cooperation agreements and the other for multi-party consortium agreements. These agreements can be used when a new party joins the project. For studies under the HRA authorization, the HRA Initial Assessment Letter (and the HRA Approval Letter) indicate the corresponding agreement for each type of site in a study. The document can be the establishment of activities and the calendar of events, an unchanged standard agreement (for example. B mCTA) or any other document provided by the Sponsor. The 7 types of research cooperation agreements cover individual projects.
Each proposes a different approach to who should own and use the intellectual property of the results or results of the project. A decision guide helps you decide which agreement you can use. The Lambert toolkit, including guides and model agreements, is only designed to be used if the agreements are governed by English law. To use another legal system, you must use legal advice from a qualified lawyer to deliberate on the law of that country.
