Types Of Collaboration Agreement
Intellectual property agreements: as the name of the agreement indicates, IP agreements are narrowly defined. As a general rule, intellectual property agreements are written to cover inventions or other discoveries that may result from cooperation. Although they can cover copyright (including some form of intellectual property), they often do not. Nevertheless, the coverage of intellectual property agreements for inventions would be much the same as for copyright. The fundamental issue that is addressed is intellectual property (i.e. who owns what and under what conditions). Other issues raised would be licensing fees between the parties and, possibly, the cost-sharing and revenue-sharing provisions related to the protection and licensing of intellectual property.

Strategic partnerships for integration may include agreements between hardware and software manufacturers or agreements between two software developers working together to have their respective technologies fully (and not always exclusive) cooperated.

Beginning in the early 2000s, Nike and Apple began tying their respective products and technologies to create what would later become Nike. When purchasing fitness shoes and specific clothing, customers can pair their products with their iPhone apple or watch to track their health and achieve other health goals. In fact, portfolio management was designed to draw best practices from the alliance`s experience and disseminate them internally. In doing so, a so-called ego company (or focal company) entered into agreements with independent companies, but then managed the knowledge flows through specific functions. That is also why the various strategic partnerships we mentioned in this article exist between some of the biggest names in the industry. Cooperation in a strategic partnership has worked for major players such as Nokia and Microsoft, and with careful planning, it can also work for your business. It`s about taking the leap and saying, “I`m doing” a strategic partnership agreement.
Each party wishes to protect all information it provides to other parties that contain confidential or commercially sensitive content and, therefore, the obligation not to disclose and protect that information should be included in the agreement.
