Updated: All agreements in relation to GDPR regulations updated.

The consortium agreements are for use with multi party projects.

The model agreements contain notes, and in many places alternative wording is shown in square brackets. You should choose which of the alternatives best suits your circumstances, if any, and all notes and optional wording should be removed before the agreement is prepared for signature.

It is not possible to have a set of model agreements which captures everyone’s circumstances in every project, but the Lambert Toolkit aims to have model agreements for some of the most commonly encountered circumstances and to illustrate terms which might apply in different scenarios. The model agreements can, and should, be adapted to meet the particular circumstances of the Project.

The appointment follows the retirement of Bob Gilbert from the role at the end of March 2018.

He is a member of the Ofcom Board and was previously a non-executive director on the Intellectual Property Office (IPO) Steering Board. As chair, Tim will provide effective strategic leadership to the Steering Board and support to the executive team.

Commenting on his appointment Tim Suter said:

I’m delighted to have been appointed to this important role and look forward to working with Tim Moss and his team. The IPO has an excellent reputation for the quality of rights it delivers for customers. Part of the reason this reputation is down to the value it places on its people. I will work to ensure the IPO continues to deliver for both its customers and its’ staff.

The role of our Steering Board is to advise ministers, through our Director General, on our strategies and performance (including targets) as set out in our corporate plan. It provides guidance from a commercial standpoint on our operation and development across a range of issues.

During the last 12 months, the Steering Board has provided advice and guidance on a wide range of topics. These include our corporate plan, agency targets, intellectual property policy, accounts and risk management. The Steering Board meets six times a year.

The government published a response on 21 May 2018 to its call for views on intellectual property (IP). The call for views was to identify what more the Intellectual Property Office (IPO) could do to help encourage innovation, creativity and joint-working.

Over 50 responses were received from IP attorneys, trade bodies, industry associations and a range of industry sectors. As a result the IPO has committed to:

  • work with the British Business Bank and Her Majesty’s Treasury (HMT) to address barriers to growth for IP rich firms. This should help them use their IP to access growth funding

  • pilot an ‘Innovation Enabler Fund” for Local Enterprise Partnerships and Universities of the West Midlands. This will give financial and advisory support to help local Small, Medium Enterprises (SMEs) put in place IP strategies

  • review and update the IP Finance Toolkit

  • develop a Business to Business toolkit to help business cooperation

Minister for Intellectual Property, Sam Gyimah said:

We are a nation of great ideas, which for many companies and innovators are their most valuable asset. Today’s response shows our intellectual property community that we are listening, and through our modern industrial strategy are determined to back our ambitious creators with a world-class IP regime.

You can read the full response on the Industrial Strategy call for views.
