Legal Frameworks and Industry Partners
The acquisition of business partners for cross innovation projects can be quite challenging. Established companies are often sceptical about the open-endedness of cross innovation processes, as they do not seem as controllable as internal innovation processes.
If a company, however, can be inspired for cross innovation, new challenges arise. Who owns the IP rights in an open innovation process? How do we deal with confidentiality agreements (NDAs) in changing team constellations and a process which requires a maximum of transparency? Those questions will be addressed in this breakout session.
Theo Haustein, responsible for cooperations at the Cross Innovation Hub, and Sebastian Rengshausen, lawyer of the Cross Innovation Hub, will be sharing their experiences and discuss them with the audience.
