We are pleased to inform you that the European IPR Helpdesk has published a new fact sheet dedicated to Consortium Agreements (CA) in the Seventh Framework Programme (FP7) funded projects.
The CA is usually divided into three main parts that respectively include preliminary clauses, central clauses and final clauses. The objective of this fact sheet is to focus on the central part, more specifically on the provisions regarding the management of Intellectual Property (IP). An overview of the relevant IP rules to be included in the CA is thus outlined with the purpose of providing a checklist of the matters to be dealt with by consortia when drafting it.
