IPR in joint research projects: evidence from practice
Author
Abstract
Joint research projects often raise the question of ownership of the resulting Intellectual Property (IP). Especially in cases of industry university cooperation, the issue is an uncovered topic. The recent wave of commercialisation of academic research results in Europe drew attention on the topic of IP protection. This study aims to describe areas of concern during Joint Research Projects in university industry cooperation. After a brief introduction, the focus of the article will be on the IP protection by means of patenting and the ways of dealing with the ownership issues. Afterwards, confidentiality and non-disclosure agreements (NDAs) are the next topics to be covered, followed by the distinction between Foreground and Background IP. Finally, the article deals with agreements to be drafted in order to manage joint researeh projects property and their practical implications.
