Through LU Innovation you will have access to qualified legal expertise in commercialisation issues.
Research results often arise in collaboration with others, which is why it is so important to carefully examine the legal opportunities for commercialisation.
What is known as the ”teacher’s exception” provides University researchers with extensive rights to their own research results, but it also places special demands on the individual researcher. Our legal counsel can guide you through any complicated rules and agreements both before and during a possible start of a company.
Through our holding company LU Holding, you are also offered a package of all the legal agreements that a new company may need, such as:
- Technology transfer agreements, which include confidentiality and licensing agreements, as well as IP transfer agreements and material transfer agreements (MTAs).
- Employment agreements and consultancy agreements, that is, agreements that control the conditions for indefinite-term employees, project staff and consultants.
- Corporate agreements, which set the framework for how the company will be managed. These include, for example, shareholder agreements, IP transfer agreements, the board’s rules of procedure, and instructions from the managing director.
- Delivery and distribution agreements, in order to get the business going quickly.
