For how long are participants under the obligation to grant access rights?

Printer-friendly versionPDF version

Access rights to background and results for the implementation of the project shall be given to other beneficiaries until the end of the project, even by the participants that leave the project before its completion.

On the other hand, requests for access rights to background and results from other beneficiaries for exploiting their own results shall be made up to one year after the end of the project.

Note that the actual duration of all access rights might be negotiated by the participants concerned and agreed differently (e.g. shorter, longer period - for instance, it might be extended until the expiration of a patent obtained on a project result).
