Workshop: Consortium Agreements for Horizon 2020

The workshop, organised by Singleimage Limited, will take place on 8 December 2015 in Cambridge, UK.

8 December 2015 - 8 December 2015
United Kingdom

A good consortium agreement can support effective project management and minimise risks to intellectual property (IP). But what is a good consortium agreement? Should power to transfer budgets between partners rest with the coordinator, or with a committee of all partners? Should affiliates have free access to the IP generated in the project? Which takes priority: academic publication or commercial confidentiality? Should EC payments be distributed immediately, or only on proof of work done?

This workshop will explain the main features and options for consortium agreements for collaborative projects in Horizon 2020 (H2020). It will compare the DESCA, Digital Europe and EUCAR model consortium agreements and will cover the major terms of the EC grant agreement, which provides the context.

The workshop is aimed at those negotiating consortium agreements: research managers, advisors and contracts staff. It will be limited to 24 participants, to allow high levels of interaction and plenty of time for questions. Note: those requiring information on the financial aspects of Horizon 2020 should attend our Finance in Horizon 2020 workshop.

Please also note that the nearest large airport to the workshop venue is London, Stansted.
