For many knowledge-intensive or technology-based start-up companies, the professional management of intellectual property (IP) is critically important. In fact, IP may be the main asset by which the value of a young company is determined and on which decisions to invest in the company are based – and so IP needs to be considered very early in the planning process. The Commercialising Intellectual Property series of ebooks provides a detailed grounding for innovators and researchers. The seventh ebook in the series, Forms of Agreement used in Managing Intellectual Property, looks at the most commonly used and important forms likely to be used during the commercialisation process: non-disclosure, confidentiality, material transfer, evaluation, contract research, exploitation, collaboration and consortium agreements.
