  • Intellectual Property | Protection of IP

13. Intellectual Property

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”).

13.2 Third Party Patents. The Parties will notify each other promptly regarding any third party intellectual property they become aware of that raises concerns about Awardee’s ability to perform its obligations under this Agreement or the potential use by CEPI of the Public Health License described in Clause 17. The Parties will cooperate in good faith to resolve any such matters.

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.
