Information


Incorrect Legal Frameworks of R&D Contracts Lead to Fatal Consequences

The exchange of knowledge and technology transfer is central for the success of R&D projects. The R&D contracts need to be safe and require clear legal strategies. Inaccuracies in contract design lead to financial risks, loss of intellectual property and research results. Additionally, the European funding program H2020 has its own explicit challenges like the Consortium Agreements and Intellectual Property Rights in the model contracts.

The seminar provides you with all essential information about European contract practice for R&D projects. Discuss with our experts and the other participants current challenges in designing and negotiating research and development contracts with focus on Consortium Agreements based on DESCA.
