Below are examples of standard ETS forms and agreements that serve as reference documents. The exact content and language of each document may change to meet specific project/partnership requirements or other considerations. Please contact us to get started. The standard SIU option contract is a legal contract by which the SIU may grant a potential licensee (company) a right to issue a licence for a period of finite time for intellectual property owned by the SIU. The agreement is often used in situations where a company is considering adjusting a technology in its portfolio or other due diligence issues. Note that the exact content and language of each document may change to reflect the specific details of each invention and partnership. Please contact us to get started. This type of agreement allows Harvard researchers who are creating a new licensed business without difficulty to copyrighted non-patentable software that they have developed as part of the faculty`s research efforts. In cases where there are patentable topics such as unique algorithms, please read the “Exclusive Basic License” agreement model published above. Harvard offers certain materials (usually organic research materials) for commercial use on a non-exclusive basis. Some materials, such as Z.B. Souris, are generally offered on a flat-rate basis or with fixed annual payments; others, such as hybrid cell lines, also include licensed payments. Typical agreements for both types of hardware licenses are listed below.

A licensing agreement is a legal contract in which the licensee (SIU) grants the licensee (company) rights for the production, sale, use and/or marketing of the intellectual property held by the licensee (SIU). Standard USSR models are available for generic technologies, therapeutic drugs, medical devices and software. Note that the exact content and language of each document may change to reflect the specific details of each invention and partnership. Please contact us to get started. To view type trust agreements, hardware transfer agreements or research cooperation agreements, please return to our standard agreements site. Harvard also offers options agreements for companies considering licensing Harvard technology. An option agreement allows a company to “keep” a technology for a short period of time during which the company can continue to assess its potential or find funds for product development without committing or harvard to comply with the obligations of a licensing agreement. Options are typically six months to a year and generally require both overcharging fees and a refund of patent tracking for the duration of the option.

Global Access Note – The development of Technologies from Harvard Patents can lead to licensed products that could bring significant public health benefits in developing countries. By participating in Universities Allied for Essential Medicines, Harvard is committed to promoting affordable access to these products in developing countries. To meet this obligation, we may require provisions similar to those in the link below in the exclusive licenses of this potentially effective technology. Notice of proposed third-party products – In the case of an exclusive license granted in all or in many areas, the licensee may first focus on a limited number of products or uses for the technology granted. In order to support Harvard`s mission to promote the common good by commercializing Harvard`s technology as widely as possible, Harvard may include provisions similar to those in the link below, to encourage a taker to develop third-party products or to sublicate the Harvard patent licensee`s rights to a third party to enable the development and commercialization of additional products.
