Lambert Agreements

Lambert 2 (2016)

This toolkit is for universities and companies that wish to undertake collaborative research projects with each other. The toolkit consists of: 

  • a decision guide
  • 7 model research collaboration (one to one) agreements 
  • 4 consortium (multi-party) agreements 
  • heads of terms and variation agreements for both collaboration and consortium agreements
  • guidance notes

The model agreements are starting points and their use is not compulsory. Each model agreement envisages a different set of circumstances and are not sector specific, allowing for flexible use. However the model agreements can be adapted to meet the particular circumstances of your project.

The Lambert Working Group on Intellectual Property (IP) prepared the tool. It was updated in 2016 (Lambert 2).
