There are two model agreements, one for bipartisan cooperation agreements and the other for multi-party consortium agreements. These agreements can be used to start negotiations to agree on the basic principles of your project. These help identify important problems at an early stage of the project and identify solutions. Public Health England has developed a fast-track model agreement (MS Word Document, 62.4KB) to quickly assess possible treatments for Ebola and Zika and share the results with stakeholders for a coordinated global response. Following consultations, it is now available as a model agreement that can be adapted to any crisis concerning human, animal and/or environmental health. The National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) offers, through its Clinical Research Infrastructure Office, a series of models of use in research partnerships involving the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industry, universities and NHS organizations. The Intellectual Property Office worked with NIHR and the Medical Research Council to develop the Model Industry Collaborative Research Agreement (MICRA). The 7-model research cooperation agreements cover one project for one. Each offers a different approach to knowing who owns and should use the IP in the results or results of the project. A decision guide will help you decide which agreement you can use. The consortium agreements B and C have been developed for use with the collaborative research and e-program By Innovate UK. Some changes make it possible to adapt them to other circumstances. The Intellectual Property Office has worked with a number of international parties to conclude separate cooperation agreements in a number of countries.
Model agreements for collaborative research are available. You will also find guidelines for ip management in the framework of international cooperation and a guide for cross-border decisions of the European Commission. In order to help you decide which of the 7 research cooperation agreements is most consistent with the circumstances of your project, you have a decision guide through some of the principles and criteria you would like to consider in deciding ownership and intellectual property rights. It may be helpful to consult this manual before using one of the collaboration agreements with the model research. They facilitate contract negotiations between publicly funded research institutes (for example. B universities) and businesses. Originally launched in 2005, it consists of 5 model agreements for individual cooperation and 4 consortium agreements for several parties. A number of model agreements and support for their use.
The Lambert toolkit, including instructions and model agreements, is only designed to be used if the agreements are governed by English law.

Lambert Toolkit was designed in 2004 to improve the process of negotiating cooperation agreements between universities and businesses through a series of agreements and guidelines.
