You were able to evaluate your project proposal for Horizon 2020 and finally sign the grant agreement and the consortium agreement. It is time to start implementing the project for which you are funded by the EU. Research and innovation projects funded through the ESI Funds include the creation and use of intellectual property, which places an essential role on intellectual property in the overall project management process. When the PSR is awarded to the lead organization of the proposal, the subcontracting agency issues a subcontract to UTD for the UTD`s share of the proposed research, unless the main sponsor expressly prohibits UTD`s participation. Explanatory notes containing concrete examples and detailed explanations of the various options and clauses are included in the model as a whole. These guidance will help research directors (who generally do not have legal training) and early PC participants to make informed decisions about the best formulations to protect their interests. A team agreement (TA) is a binding agreement between one or more organizations that partner to propose to a main sponsor – often a federal government agency – a new collaborative research project in response to a tender request (RFP). The lead organization of the proposal generally designs the TA. A subaward is an agreement with a third-party organization that carries out part of a funded UTD research project or program. The terms of the relationship (sub-subsidy/subcontracting) are influenced by the main agreement and all sub-primes must be monitored to ensure that the sub-recipient meets these conditions. A sub-recipient works with the main recipient to do the work as proposed.
A sponsored research agreement (SRA) is concluded when an external institution, generally industrial and sectoral, provides funding to the UTD to support a given research project to support a given research project, with the hope of obtaining reports or some results. While initial discussions take place in different ways between industrial faculties and UTD faculties or research leaders, projects should only be implemented if a well-defined research proposal, including a budget, has been submitted as part of the UDT`s internal audit procedures and a funding agreement has been negotiated and signed by the authorized representatives of both parties. The European Automotive Research and Development Council (EUCAR), as the European research and development body in the automotive and road transport sector, has just published a new agreement on a consortium of models. A rights allocation document (AOR) is a non-monetary agreement that defines rights between parties to existing (context) and future intellectual property. As a general rule, the country of intellectual protection is discussed in the context of financing agreements in connection with the other terms and conditions. If IP privileges are required to create before an award document, an AOR is used. As a general rule, an AOR grants each party the use of the project IP not exclusively and without compensation for the project performance. It also contains an option to negotiate an exclusive license in a separate agreement. If you submit a SBIR or STTR proposal, an AOR is required before a compliant letter of commitment is sent to the company. This is necessary to ensure that all background IPs are identified and protected, while defining rights for the leading IP. Since the SBIR and STTR proposals are funded by the Confederation, the Bayh-Dole Act is used with 37 CFR 401s, which says what we invent, what we own, what you invent, own and own together inventions created together.
