Collaborative research

The key to fruitful cooperation is creating an environment in which exchange of the information is secured in the interest of all parties involved allowing at the same time flexibility in the process of reaching the targets.


In order to do so it is necessary to conclude agreements with respect to ownership and control of the research results, as well as to exploitation and publication rights.
