What will I learn?

R&D collaborations are becoming increasingly important in the field of plant innovation, making modern breeding technologies available to a broad variety of breeding companies and providing opportunities to take a company’s breeding program to a higher level.

Drafting R&D agreements may be challenging in practice. During this course, the structure and key provisions of R&D agreements will be discussed on the basis of practical examples, with a focus on the IP arrangements (ownership and access rights during and after the collaboration) and other legal aspects that need to be taken into account, such as EU competition and state aid regulations.

Various types of R&D collaborations will be touched upon, including (cross sector) multi party collaborations, research institutes and subsidized projects. The participants will learn about the particularities of the types of collaborations and the pitfalls that need to be taken into account when drafting these agreements.

Both members of R&D departments and the legal team are invited to participate and share their experience.
