This intensive, practical one-day course will explain what you need to know and do to get the commercial results from your R&D and joint venture agreements in 2019, 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
will need to agree on the thorny topic of IP ownership, other common provisions and the type of collaboration structure that will suit them both. The allocation of risk and ancillary agreements such as confidentiality, material transfer agreements and heads of terms also have to be wrestled with.
