Co-ownership agreement

Joint researches often result with the creation of industrial property, which ownership is shared between the different researchers according to the provisions of the research agreement.

It is often necessary to fully negotiate the provisions of a co-ownership agreement with regard to a patent or patent application.

Such agreement is essential, since it will have to take into account upstream agreements (confidentiality agreements, evaluation agreements, research agreements) and to anticipate downstream commercial agreements (development agreements, licence agreements).
