Successful collaborations between researchers and external parties start with good agreements. The legal experts and business developers at IXA can provide advice and support when drafting and recording agreements on the use of research results and with regard to public-private partnerships.
Negotiating an agreement that suits the interests of all parties can be challenging. Especially when commercial parties are involved, it is key to thoroughly prepare for discussions and negotiations. IXA gladly takes a place at the table to assist you during the negotiations of any type of agreement. This way, we aim to ensure that the interests of all parties involved are respected.
Once dialogue with a third party approaches the end stage of closing collaboration agreements, IXA can help you finalise the formalities. We make sure that all financial and legal aspects of the contract, including intellectual property arrangements, are fully compliant with the policies and guidelines of your institution.
