  • How do I define ownership of foreground?
  • How do I set up a regime for granting access rights?
  • What are basic IP aspects to be considered under Horizon 2020? (Please note that additional webinars specifically addressing exploitation issues under Horizon 2020 will be offered separately in the course of this year.)
