The Lambert toolkit helps academic institutions and industrial partners carry out collaborative research projects. The toolkit was developed in 2004 to help improve the process of negotiating collaborative research agreements between universities and business through a series of model agreements and guidance. A revised Lambert Toolkit, extending the guidance in area such as areas such as state aid and the charitable status of universities, data protection and anti‐bribery, was launched in October 2016, following a review by IP Pragmatics.
The IPO is now seeking feedback on levels of awareness of the Lambert Toolkit, how the agreements and guidance are being used and its immpact amongst businessess and universities. The objectives of the toolkit are to:
- facilitate negotiations between potential partners
- reduce the time, money and effort required to secure agreement
- provide examples of best practice
PraxisAuril is a member of the Lambert Toolkit Working Group and our members are key users of the agreements and guidance. We encourage as many people as possible to complete the survey and share with collaborating partners so that this resource can have increased reach and greater impact in knowlege exchange.
