Introduction to Legal Agreements in H2020: When and how to use them

Project Management series

This webinar will provide you a practical insight to the full spectrum of legal agreements you may come across or choose to use in a Horizon 2020 proposal and project.

Date Time Duration
45+15 min

There are legal agreements that support you in the proposal preparation phase - making the proposal confidential, helping to handle IP arrangements or ensuring the commitment of partners. Then there is the 2020 Grant Agreement, consortium agreement, third party agreements, joint ownership agreement and licencing agreement.

These all can protect you and/or the project, but how? We will explain.

Topics covered:

  • Non-Disclosure Agreement (NDA)
  • Letter of Intent (LoI), Letter of Commitment (LoC)
  • Memorandum of Understanding (MoU)
  • Subcontracting and Third-Party Agreements
  • The Grant Agreement and the Consortium Agreement
  • Joint Ownership Agreement and Licencing Agreement

At the end of the webinar, you will have an all-round understanding of the legal agreements in H2020 and practical knowledge on how to choose and use them in different scenarios.
