DLA Piper advises on Intellectual Property Agreement Guide project
DLA Piper has advised as project legal counsel on the implementation of the first standardised online Intellectual Property Agreement Guide (IPAG) project.
IPAG is a joint initiative of the Federal Ministry for Science and Research, the Federal Ministry of Economy, Family and Youth and the Federal Ministry for Transport, Innovation and Technology under the National Contact Point for Intellectual Property, which was implemented by the Austrian Economic Service.
Over the course of the project, technology-transfer contract templates were developed for the first time with input from universities, non-university research institutions, industrial companies and small and medium-sized enterprises.
These standardised contract templates will enable Austrian universities and future contract partners to make use of both comprehensive and annotated contract know-how and ready-to-use short template contracts, enabling an efficient relationship with commercial enterprises in relation to intellectual property rights.
The templates are available to the public free of charge in both English and German through an online portal and comprise almost all technology-transfer-related areas of co-operation between research institutions and companies in the private sector, including licence agreements, material transfer agreements, patent-purchase agreements and research and development contracts.
