state aid and IP in R&D agreements - hear from our panel of experts

15 March 2019

As private businesses, public bodies and universities alike strive to gain a competitive advantage, each increasingly look to each other to develop next generation products and services. Wherever public money, public resources or outcomes are committed in any way, the law of state aid should be considered by all at the outset. State aid law is wide ranging and often difficult to navigate, creates risk for all parties and is more frequently complicating contract negotiations in the ownership and licensing of intellectual property rights arising out of collaborations.  

In this webinar recording, Selina Hinchliffe, Alex Kynoch, Nick Smee and Helen Jones hold a panel discussion covering some of the key state aid concepts and how this impacts ownership and licensing of intellectual property, both from a commercial partner, public body and university perspective.
