According to the Rules for Participation and the standard model Grant Agreement, foreground resulting from the project is owned by the participant “carrying out the work generating that foreground”. In case participants have carried out the work jointly and their respective share cannot be ascertained, such foreground is generally jointly owned.

Maintaining records, such as laboratory notebooks, illustrating the progress of the creation of results is generally the most practical and effective way to easily demonstrate that you carried out the work generating the foreground. In addition, those laboratory notebooks may assist you in case you need to define your share of the work performed in the creation of a jointly owned foreground.
