Automotive webinar - Grant Funding and Collaboration Agreements

21 June 2022

The EV revolution has sparked a marked increase in research and development activity throughout the automotive sector as we enter into an exciting new era. The shift in technology brings fresh challenges as OEMs seek to collaborate with new partners offering the right expertise. There are significant pots of public money available to fund such endeavours via grants.

In this session we examined the legal framework around grant funded collaborations and discussed the key risks to be aware of, including IP ownership and compliance with grant terms.
