[This Clause 19 describes the insurance and provides mutual indemnification provisions.]

19.1 Indemnification for Third Party Claims. Awardee will indemnify and defend CEPI, its Affiliates, third party contractors and employees from and against any and all claims, damages, and liabilities asserted by third parties (including claims for negligence) which arise directly or indirectly from: (i) Awardee’s, or its Sub–Awardee’s activities under this Agreement, or (ii) the use of the Product, Project Results or Enabling Rights (including for the avoidance of doubt, the use of the Product in development activities and clinical studies), save to the extent such claim, damage or liability is caused by CEPI’s negligence or intentional misconduct.

19.2 Conduct of Responses to Third Party Claims. Each Party shall use its reasonable endeavours to inform the other Party promptly of any circumstances that are likely to give rise to a third party claim which may be covered by Clause 19.1 together with copies of all relevant papers and official documents. CEPI shall not take any material action in respect of any third party claim without the consent of Awardee, including settlement of any such third party claim, provided such consent is not unreasonably conditioned, withheld or delayed. The Awardee will keep CEPI fully informed of the progress of all relevant third party claims for which are covered by Clause 19.1 and shall fully consult CEPI on the nature of any defence to be advanced in advance.

19.3 Exclusions. Neither Party shall be liable to the other Party for any loss of profits or economic loss; or indirect, incidental or consequential damages, whether in contract, warranty, negligence, tort, strict liability or otherwise, arising out of any breach of or failure to perform any of the provisions of this Agreement.

19.4 Liability Cap. CEPI’s maximum liability in aggregate to Awardee arising out of this Agreement shall not exceed the aggregate of the total Work Package budget unless CEPI has exercised the Public Health Licence in which event CEPI’s maximum liability to Awardee arising out of this Agreement shall not exceed the lesser of: (i) the aggregate of the total Work Package budget or (ii) CEPI’s total insurance cover for any clinical trials or provision of pharmaceutical Product under the Public Health Licence.

19.5 Exclusions from Liability Cap. Notwithstanding the foregoing, nothing in this Agreement shall limit the liability of either Party in respect of:
