Intellectual Property 

The Intellectual Property Framework is intended to help participants in GÉANT Activities handle intellectual property in ways that are consistent with GÉANT’s principles. It specifies the principles under which GÉANT operates with regard to intellectual property created or developed during the course of a GÉANT Activity.

Why does the GÉANT community need an Intellectual Property Framework?
  • European Commission Funding & FP7 Rules.
  • The GÉANT Contract with the European Commission.
  • Best practice.
  • Recognition and acknowledgement for developers.
  • As a mechanism to ensure wide adoption of the technology.
