WP6-T3 Technological transfer and licensing agreements

As developing IPR is a crucial step that may be difficult to achieve in an optimal way in the context of a Collaborative Project including academic and industrial partners, the IP committee will define general rules in a strategic commercialisation development plan that will take into account the interests of the entire partnership.
This will provide a framework to harmonize the procedures for negotiation and to facilitate the close relationship between institutions, SME and external industrial companies, and in order to offer a better opportunity for industrial partnerships through a simplified and focused licensing procedure.

The members of the IP committee will be informed regularly by the partners owning the patents and the know-how of the negotiations in progress with the SME’s concerning the granting of licenses or access rights.
The IP committee will check whether the agreements are negotiated with fair and reasonable conditions according to the European Commission IP rules.
