Kti Collaboration Agreement

Mike Burroughs

As part of its work, KTI collects and analyses data from eight Irish universities, one university of technology, eleven institutes of technology and four other colleges and institutions working in the field of research, in collaboration with the Higher Education Authority (HEA) to carry out the Annual Survey on Know-how Transfer (AKTS). The survey covers activities such as licensing, research cooperation, consultancy and the setting up of spin-off companies. In 2018, research cooperation between companies and these bodies led to the creation of 30 new spin-out companies, compared to 21 in 2017, and 124 patent applications in the academic sector, 76 percent of which. In 2018, licenses, option agreements and assignment agreements increased by 33%, the highest figure since the start of the survey. The majority of licences were signed with Irish companies (76%), of which 61% were signed with Irish SMEs. This agreement is intended for use in situations where it has been agreed that once it has been established as part of a cooperation project, IP is in shared possession and describes how that IP is managed between the parties. ITCI supports these cooperations in various ways. "We bring together on our site a multitude of materials and resources that help companies in their approach to collaboration with a third-level institution," she adds. "For example, they can see all the financial and other aid available for R&D in Ireland. We also have a number of framework documents on the rules of commitment to cooperation.

These are prefabricated legal agreements that allow companies to spend their time thinking about the project rather than spending it on the legal conditions that govern it. "The 6th annual survey was carried out by Knowledge Transfer Ireland in collaboration with the Higher Education Authority. The survey covers the period from 1 January 2019 to 31 December 2019 and collected data from eight Irish universities, one university of technology, eleven institutes of technology and four other institutes and research institutions. . . .
