The Lambert toolkit

The Government Intellectual Property Office has recently updated and expanded the Lambert toolkit, provided for universities and companies that wish to undertake collaborative research projects with each other.

Request for evidence

Working with the Association for University Research and Industry Links, PraxisUnico and the Association for Research Managers and Administrators, the HEFCE-universities Knowledge Exchange Framework Group asked for evidence to inform a decision on a potential 'deep dive' review in this area. 

Update: The request for evidence is now closed.
