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.
