We will discuss in this contribution contractual cooperation agreements which are, for the most part, fully included in this treaty. There are many examples of cooperation agreements floating on the Internet. Cooperation agreements: cooperation agreements between institutions are implemented in the same way as association agreements, whether or not sponsored funding is expected. They cover the same programming issues as team agreements. In addition, when staff of one institution use the institutions of the other institution, cooperation agreements may include the typical provisions of an agreement to use the facilities, as listed below. Cooperation agreements can also have fairly detailed conditions for intellectual property. Cooperation agreements provide conditions for the relationship of employees, for example. B by the provision: Once the money is involved, many of the „gentlemen`s agreements“ under which you have worked may collapse. A large number of problems can arise: the cooperation agreements of the Collaborative Promotion Partnership (CDP) programme have an initial duration of 5 years and can be renewed or renewed.

Cooperation agreements are usually found when individuals or companies that have their own business unite for something special and unique. Cooperation agreements are used by parties who wish to create a contractual joint venture. The content of a cooperation agreement will vary depending on the nature of the project: if, for example, it is real estate, there are specific provisions for the protection of the property used in the project; If the project is a technology project, there will be specific provisions to determine who owns the intellectual property created under the project and who is responsible for intellectual property, as well as the terms of any license to operate that intellectual property; If the project is a research project, there will be specific provisions on how each party should use, develop, protect and create confidential information. Intellectual property agreements: as the name of the agreement indicates, IP agreements are narrowly defined. As a general rule, intellectual property agreements are written to cover inventions or other discoveries that may result from cooperation. Although they can cover copyright (including some form of intellectual property), they often do not. Nevertheless, the coverage of intellectual property agreements for inventions would be much the same as for copyright. The fundamental issue that is addressed is intellectual property (i.e. who owns what and under what conditions). Other issues raised would be licensing fees between the parties and, possibly, the cost-sharing and revenue-sharing provisions related to the protection and licensing of intellectual property.

The Subawards. These are agreements between an institution that has a sponsored agreement (Prime Awardee Prime Awardee the institution that executes the main agreement with the sponsor) and another institution (Subrecipient Subrecipient The legal person to which a subcontractor is awarded and which is responsible for the use of the funds made available to the beneficiary). Sub-recipients must comply with the administrative provisions of the main price. Other terms that are used are subsitheus or sub-grante.
