  • Intellectual Property | Protection of IP

13. Intellectual Property

[This Clause 13 describes the treatment of IP rights that arise under the Project or that are owned by third parties and may affect the Project. Generally, CEPI’s interest in IP is knowing what IP has been developed with CEPI funding and having rights under that IP sufficient to utilize the Public Health License described in Clause 17.]

13.1 Protection for Project IP. Awardee has the right, but not the obligation, to seek protection, at its own cost, for the discoveries, inventions, know–how, patents, trademarks and other forms of intellectual property that arise under the Project (“Project IP”).


13.3 The Awardee will:

a. notify the JMAG as Project IP is created, discovered or made; any applications for any rights to Project IP are submitted or are otherwise prosecuted; any application regarding the registration of any Project IP is granted, including the granting of any patent or trade mark, as part of its regular IPDP reports; and

b. ensure that it has enforceable policies or written agreements with all of its employees, agents and subcontractors which assign to the Awardee ownership of all Project IP.
