A collective agreement or institutional policy may also allow institutions to use works prepared by faculty members free of charge for educational and administrative purposes within the institution. Faculty members should be encouraged to include in their agreements uses that transfer the copyright of such works to a publishing house. These uses would allow the institution to work more efficiently, for example to respond to requests from the Accreditation Agency, and not to violate the legitimate rights of faculties. Where the term „patent“ is used in this Agreement, it shall be understood that the bundle of rights that protect inventions or discoveries that constitute a new and useful process, machine, manufacture or composition of material, or a new and useful improvement thereof; new and decorative designs for all plant articles and patents useful for the asexual reproduction of a specific variety of plants, including cultivated, mutant, hybrid and newly found plants, with the exception of a plant or tuberculated plant found in an uncultivated state. The Parties to this Agreement believe that the best way to serve the public interest is to create an intellectual environment in which creative efforts and innovation can be encouraged and rewarded, while granting the university or university and its learning communities adequate access to and use of the intellectual property that the university or university has supported. The ideas, know-how, data (including results of clinical trials) and other intellectual property generated in the course of this clinical study are the exclusive and exclusive property of the employer of the inventive party.

The Employee agrees that all prior inventions are included in this Section 2. If no prior invention is mentioned in this Section 2, the employee declares that there are no prior inventions.
The exclusive and exclusive right to inventions or discoveries related to the medicinal product, whether patentable or not, made by the Sponsor in the performance of work under this Agreement, shall be the property of the Sponsor.
